Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery presents Wild Is The Wind, its second exhibition with Scottish artist Jim Lambie. Lambie is one of the leading artists of his generation, and one of the most significant colourists to have emerged from his home city of Glasgow.
Lambie’s art is rooted in colour theory and synaesthesia, created using ready-made objects infused with an aesthetic, rhythmic and almost psychedelic nature. Drawing from pop artists of the 1960s, Lambie focuses on mass production, consumption and contemporary society. Jonathan Jones, the art critic of The Guardian has compared him to a synthesis of Joseph Beuys and Jackson Pollock.
Exhibition opens 6—8pm Wednesday 30 October 2019
