Illusion and the mesmerising visual effects of op art and lenticular printing are cleverly adapted in Andrew Lamb’s work. He combines fine lengths of gold and silver wire to construct sculptural, three-dimensional jewellery. By layering, twisting or overlapping, he creates pieces with rippling textures and subtle colour variations which surprise us with surfaces that appear to shift and change as the eye moves across them. He make pieces that emulate the perfection found within the natural form yet highlight the imperfections in the way we see and perceive.
Andrew was born in Edinburgh in 1978 and educated at Edinburgh College of Art and the Royal College of Art in London. His work is exhibited internationally and features in numerous public and private collections, including the Marzee Collection, the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh and the Alice and Louis Koch Collection in Zurich. Since 2009, he has taught at Glasgow School of Art and is a visiting lecturer at numerous international schools.
