Home Grown

Todd Lambeth

This exhibition opens on Friday, January 4th, 7:00 PM
Exhibition runs through Sunday, January 27th, 2013
Gallery Hours: Saturdays and Sundays, 12 to 4 pm

Serially driven and working in the traditional genres of landscape and still life, Todd Lambeth’s painting practice incorporates a wide range of subjects and techniques that both celebrate and question the medium. Inspired by, and often painted from photographs, Lambeth’s paintings translate their initial sources into richly handled works that push painting in the direction of the documentary. Perceived as if painted in smoke, Home Grown addresses contemp­orary social and cultural issues surrounding marijuana; from depictions of glass marijuana pipes to appropriated surveillance camera stills of alleged drug traffickers, Home Grown bridges a gap between art and life.
