“Night Circus” - Roulier & Lamb exhibit at CORE

Posted by

Come one, come all and experience a unique carousel of rusty elephants and horses, fortune tellers and toads. This multi-faceted dreamscape of attractions is the culmination of artworks by Claudia Roulier & Michelle Lamb of CORE New Art Space Gallery.

Roulier’s work incorporates the curious, the odd, the intrigue, the magic and the enigma of the circus world. Returning to her earlier fascinations with the circus she weaves together dystopian shrines and sculptures with tapestries of found objects, lights, electronics, and various skeletal bits and pieces. Her paintings bring a perspective to the nostalgia of the circus memories from days past with it’s warm and sympathetic animal performers.

An industrial baroque carousel of clockworks and fortune teller fun, Lamb magically transforms common or obsolete objects into thought provoking marvels of assemblage. Deconstructed then reassembled, she highly manipulates parts and pieces so the metamorphosis is eerily seamless. Often literally turning things inside out, her story-filled oddities feature nature merging with machinery, metals meshed with clay, the grotesque magnified into beauty.
