The Artist
Scottish artist Jim Lambie works on sculptures and installations directly inspired by pop culture and everyday life, often moving into the language of design. Using vivid colors and brilliant materials, he represents objects that are recognizable but reinterpreted in imaginative and oneiric fashion. Rock culture, above all English, dominates his imagination, where psychedelia plays a central role.

The very titles of his works are reworkings of verses of songs, strophes, and famous albums.
