"In stark contrast to past work, the new series explores the notion of adornment of the affordable kind. Ribbons, bows, and streamers in a historical context may evoke feelings of nostalgia, kitsch, and pomp. Allow me to reference Pop Art to describe the work, with the intention to monumentalize these humble objects."
American artist, Lenore Rae Lampi recently exhibited sculptural work at Art Palm Beach 2020 and SOFA Chicago 2019 with Steidel Contemporary Gallery. She is scheduled to show at CONTEXT Miami, in December 2020 with Steidel Contemporary. Her bronze sculpture "Found Furls" was accepted for the Fahrenheit 2018 Biennial at the AMOCA Museum, Pomona, California.
Currently, Lenore Rae Lampi’s work can be found in the permanent collection of Tweed Museum of Art, Vermilion Community College and Cuyo University, Mendoza, Argentina, and touring in Finland. Private installations include a wall of work at the Marriott South West, Minneapolis. Several pieces of the Bling Series are on display in early September with A Way Online Art Gallery in the exhibit titled, Spectrum.
