Steve Lambert At Charlie James
We continued out lucky streak with the Steve Lambert exhibition at Charlie James Gallery. Mash up American vernacular visuals with corporate and commercial language, shake a little bit after sprinkling a bit of post-Warholian take on recent crass art market triumphalism (pre-recession) and you get a great show, funny and attractive but that has something to say. Did I mention the pieces were dirt cheap? Steve Lambert has received his MFA at UC Davis where Stephen Kaltenbach teaches. As I'm sure you would have guessed.
The show was reviewed by Christopher Knight in the LAT.
