Assemblage, Mixed Media, Painting
About the artistVanessa Lam is a visual artist working in mixed media painting. She uses painting and assemblage to explore our relationship with everyday objects in urban environments. She deliberately combines together unrelated common objects, like cardboard packaging, baseboard trim, piece of burlap or an image of a doorknob, to create a new and unexpected context. In this new perspective, these objects once considered mundane now shift to a greater level of significance. In highlighting textures, shapes and patterns, she celebrates the time-worn beauty of everyday objects. Vanessa was recently awarded first place in the Semiahmoo Arts Juried Art Exhibit and her work was chosen to be in a recent issue of Uppercase Magazine. She has exhibited and sold her work at various community venues and public galleries in the Lower Mainland.
