Collage on paper
40 x 32 inches
Based in Toronto, Sandra Lambert is an abstract artist whose work ranges from the gestural to the figurative, and is characterized by organic shapes, layered textures and intense color. Her paintings and collages are intuitive explorations of the tension between expressiveness and restraint.
Spirit Woman is one of a series of figurative collages from 2019, entitled, She Composes Herself, referencing both the process of painting and the containment of emotion. To create these figures, Sandra cut up earlier work on paper, and played with cut up shapes until the figure emerged. Each collage is embossed with the artist’s initials.
