The Torrance Art Museum is pleased to present the opening reception for Peter Lamb: Redoubling, an exhibition of work by UK artist Peter Lamb.
The work in Redoubling stems from a process of photographing the peripheral fall out from painting. Fusing and jostling together different formats and media, Lamb’s resultant paintings can nonetheless be read as direct outputs of the distinct languages of each discipline. Through digitally manipulating images in Photoshop, the surfaces of the paintings are clearly worked. But in pushing the photographs to the limits of their capacity— to the brink of collapse —an intensification of the color saturated photograph exudes from within the weave of the synthetic canvas.
