Peter Lamb’s (London, 1973) process is based on a never ending reworking of images, mainly photographs taken within his studio.
His work starts with photographing details in his studio that are best described as events or coincidental combinations of colour and texture. These photographs are subsequently and continuously reworked, reprinted and painted over, creating works that are both painterly and photographic in nature.
Lamb graduated from the Camberwell School of Art (now Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts London) in 1996 and has shown his work in many national and international venues, such as Cling and Bang in Reykjavik, Baltic 39 in Gateshead and the CTRL gallery in Houston Texas. He lives and works in London.
