Bree Lamb

January 31, 2018

Bree Lamb's still life photography asks us to stop and take a closer look into objects from daily life that hold impact on our memories and our perceptions of domesticity.  They contain both a shared yet varied experience.  She examines and isolates these objects as she questions notions of the weight they each hold and their role in modern and past conventions.  

 

Artist Statement:

 

In the series, A House, A Home, I isolate ubiquitous household objects as a way to begin to investigate traditions

of domestic American life. My observations are rooted in my own personal indulgences, expectations, and

questions, as well as how I see myself existing within this larger system. I'm interested in revealing some of the

complex layers of this shared cultural vernacular through pairing the familiar with the unexpected and creating

anticipation that is never quite resolved. The interventions and style of capture re-contextualize the objects as a

way to challenge traditional domesticity and to pose questions about convention, consumption, and

convenience as staples of American popular culture.
