|Melissa Ann Lambert||Biography: I am a mixed-media artist whose works include traditional media (watercolor, pastel, pen and ink, oil, acrylic), digital or new media, and combinations of both. Upcoming plans are to work with animation.
In early 2007 I received a Durfee Foundation ARC (Artists Resource for Completion) Grant. In December 2007, curators Howard Fox of LACMA, Peter Frank of the Riverside County Museum of Art, and Rex Bruce from the LA Center for Digital Art juried work into a show at LACDA. In April of 2008, I was selected by curator Shaurya Kumar of Bowling Green University, Ohio to be in the exhibit "Perfect with Pixel", an international exhibition that focused on works that are done by integrating digital with traditional art-making methods. My work was picked to be a part of the retrospective Intuitive Eye: The Diana Zlotnick Collection at the Los Angeles Valley College Art Gallery in 2009. This year I had work curated into the Southern Nevada Museum of Fine Art which at the museum’s request is now in their permanent collection. My work has also been curated into a hardcover art book now available in bookstores: International Contemporary Masters 2010.
Writer Michael Ned Holte has said of my work “Employing an arsenal of digital tools, Melissa Lambert mines a hallucinatory territory embedded with personal codes and signals that lend her dizzying, pixelated surfaces unusual depth.”
Influences include the latest fantastical discoveries of particle physics, synchronicity, superstring, holonomic brain and biotic theory, and Taoism. Authors as diverse as Gary Zukov, Brian Greene, Daniel Goleman, Carlos Castenada, Aldous Huxley, Joseph Campbell, William Blake, and Carl Jung have influenced my perception and vision.
