ART EDIT PRESENTS PIONEERING FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY TO LIVEN UP YOUR WALLS.
You would never guess that Sharon Lamb does not consider herself a naturally creative person. The artist spent the first 25 years of her career in nuclear medicine before picking up a camera in 2012, when she began her foray into light painting. The striking simplicity of Sharon’s work belies the complexity of the process. Each light painting is made in a dark room (in the most literal sense: there is no light at all) where she “paints” each image using a torch – usually modified in some way – that is pointed onto the parts of her subject that she wishes to capture. Sometimes this is a motorcycle with a shimmer-slick silhouette, sometimes it is her son’s face covered in hundreds and thousands. To finish, the art is then baked into metal sheets at Print2Metal in Melbourne. The final products are usually a captivating combination of bold, bright and irreverent.
