#14 – Batimat Building Smarter

Running Water by Artist Chyrum Lambert

“I don’t want my work to replicate something, but I want it to be poetically correct,” artist Chyrum Lambert says to ArchiExpo. His Running Water / Red Tile piece, in perfect harmony with this year’s Idéobain exhibition on bathroom products, caught our eye.

He begins by painting intuitively with varied materials such as ink wash and clothing dye. He then cuts the painted paper and recomposes adding materials such as wax and electrical tape. For this piece he finished in 2014, he used ink wash, Rit dye, wax, acrylic paint and pencil. He hand painted, cut and adhered the materials onto an 80 pound cover sheet.

Lambert has exhibited solo and with group shows in New York and Los Angeles. His work was featured on the cover of the album Sun Coming Down by the Montreal based band Ought released on September 18, 2015.
