RON LAMBERT
My current work uses images of nature combined with constructed objects to discuss our efforts to make sense and/or control our environment. I give my work the job of capturing contemporary life, providing mementos of things the culture does or should feel for. I use imagery of places we want to be, and places we try to forget. Culture moves at an exhausting pace yet it is difficult to make art about flux, to make objects and images that ask the audience to remain still in a culture that constantly threatens to pass them by. As we leave our bodies to move at the pace of progress, we pass the physical parts of life, which remind us that we make up the spaces we are in. It is in the moments of the sublime experience that life slows down, if even for a second.

Feral Geographies is made from 2 bodies of photographic work titled Dual Landscape and Clipping Mask. I am interested in the collection, cultivation, and recreation of the natural world. The human compulsion to re-contextualize and reframe that which we deem natural is a consistent theme in my work. The friction caused by the gap between the reality we know to be true and the one we buy into for the sake of education or entertainment is made visible by a line of demarcation. I aim to make visible the moment of friction caused by these two eerily similar worlds nearly
making contact.
