Corey K. Lamb (b. 1983) is a Texas-born artist currently established as an Assistant Professor of Painting at Florida Atlantic University in sunny South Florida. Mapping elements of his biography onto archetypal forms and figures, Lamb's paintings explore the tangential point between existentialism and eroticism. Specificity in his work gives way to persona, as figures take on the guise of familiar roles: the mother, the lover, the fool, and the serpent. Narratives constructed around simple gestures and common motifs are convened through visceral applications of oil paint, plastic acrylic shapes, and carefully arranged spray marks. Flat, ornate floral shapes mockingly dance around thick, heavy flesh. From deep within the images resonate profound melancholy and absolute bliss.
Lamb received his BFA from Stephen F. Austin State University and his MFA in Painting from Indiana University at Bloomington in 2016. His work has been exhibited internationally through representation with Galerie Wolfsen, located in Aalborg, Denmark, and nationally through numerous group exhibitions throughout the United States.
