Lamb Gallery is pleased to present In Three Acts, Emma Bjurström’s (Sweden, 1986) first solo exhibition in London.
Taking as a point of departure the masterpieces of artists like Anders Zorn and John Singer – showcased at the National Museum in Stockholm –, Bjurström has developed a series of paintings evoking the complexity of fabrics, surfaces, and objects. It is clear, then, that what captures the artist’s attention in those portraits are the interiors rather than the sitters. In this series, Bjurström depicts several pieces of furniture: she is interested in the static qualities of the object and how that innate aspect of the piece coexists with its purpose of being used and inhabited.
