Taylor-Jensen Fine Arts celebrates the advent of Spring with a bright and colourful collection of paintings by local artist Georgia Lambert.

A combination of abstract works and still lifes in a variety of sizes create a small retrospect of the work of this talented artist. Painting with acrylics and sometimes including found objects, Lambert’s work stands out from the rest with a vibrancy of colour combined with an almost child-like application of strong brush strokes.

Her paintings often include extensions, collage, fragments and assemblages producing ‘out of square’ works which are dynamic and powerful presentations. In a catalogue for an exhibition of Lambert’s work in Greece in 2008, critic and art historian Athena Schina wrote: “The paintings of Georgia Lambert are explosive. They consist of senses of memory, experiences and imagination.

Their psychological make-up comes from the bowels of a volcano of the unconscious. Their dynamic takes shape in a centrifugal manner, making its escape from the second to the third dimension and from the inner axes of composition towards the space of art, of reality, of the mind.”

Georgia will exhibit 12 - 15 works from four series that she has spent the last twenty years developing as her signature painting styles: The Swimming Pool Series, the Parrot Series, Nature Studies (mostly flowers) and a truly abstract approach she calls her Star Wars Series. A combination of colour and movement in her art ensures that the canvases leap off the walls! “Licorice All Sorts” is an exhibition not to be missed.

Georgia Lambert was born in Feilding to Greek parents who returned to live in Greece during Georgia’s teenage years allowing Georgia to partake of some of the finest art courses on the Continent. After obtaining a Fine Arts degree in painting at the Academia di Brera in Milan, she went to Paris in 1980 to study at L’Ecole des Beaux Arts on a scholarship for two years of post-graduate studies.

Georgia then went to London where she took a full-time one year graduate course at the Motley Theatre Design School. Since 1984 Ms Lambert has worked professionally in the theatre and TV while still finding time to hold solo exhibitions of her work in Athens, Paris, Cyprus and New Zealand. She also taught art at secondary schools in Greece for ten years.

In 1998 Georgia returned to New Zealand, her country of birth, for eight years where she painted and ran the Studio Art Group teaching art and participating in community activities and exhibitions including a solo exhibition at Taylor-Jensen Fine Arts in 2000. She returned to Athens in 2006 where she resided and painted; in 2008 she held a one-woman show at the Arktus Gallery in Athens.

Being based in Athens, Georgia was able to travel widely throughout Europe. In 2011 Georgia returned permanently to New Zealand; after spending a year in Auckland she settled in Palmerston North. Lambert has set up her new studio and also teaches at Studio on the Square at Square Edge. “Licorice All Sorts” is her second solo exhibition at Taylor-Jensen Fine Arts; the show will run through 24th October.
