In this episode, I talk to the artist Corey Lamb about his life, work and his teaching experience. We dive into his current body of work, where he sees his relationship with his partner transposed over a larger,more archetypal theater. Specificity gives way to persona, as figures take on the guise of familiar roles: the mother, the lover, the fool, and the serpent. Narratives constructed around simple gestures and common motifs are cobbled together visually through visceral applications of oil paint, plastic acrylic shapes, and carefully arranged spray marks. Flat, ornate floral shapes mockingly dance around thick, heavy flesh. Deep melancholy and absolute bliss permeate throughout the images.
