Amber Roome Contemporary Art presents an exhibition of new work by James Lumsden and Rosalind Lawless

About

James Lumsden makes deliberately seductive paintings, in which an interplay is formed between illusion and reality, between the monochrome field of light and the random painterly pour, between fabrication and accident. Using monochrome painting as a model, his work is ultimately about the impossible pursuit of perfection and is rooted in a questioning of the desire for purity, whether aesthetic or ideological. Even in the internal space of her studio, Rosalind Lawless believes that everything you work with is related to the room in which you are. It is exactly this belief that she bring to her work. Within the work colours are continually overlaid, constructed with paint and print. Lawless uses different kinds of material: charcoal, graphite, drawings and photographs, to physically construct space within the composition of her work.
