Born 1975 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Lives in New York City.
Emily Noelle Lambert makes intuitive, vibrant paintings and sculptures that draw from diverse art historical movements, cultures, and styles. Lambert’s paintings encompass referential and non-objective forms of abstraction as well as figuration. The paintings are rich in color and texture and engender loose, non-linear narratives. Her sculptures are essentially sensitive responses to her materials, mostly found or discarded wood, foam, steel, and other objects.
Emily Noelle Lambert received her MFA from Hunter College, New York and her BA in Visual Art from Antioch College, Ohio. Lambert’s last solo exhibition was Bellow at Denny Gallery in 2017. Lambert has also had solo exhibitions with Lu Magnus in New York City, Regina Rex in Brooklyn, Priska Juschka Fine Art in New York City, IM ART Gallery in Seoul, South Korea, and Thomas Robertello Gallery in Chicago. Lambert has received prestigious artist residencies at the MacDowell Colony, Edward F. Albee Foundation, Alfred and Trafford Klots International Artist Residency in Léhon, France, Lower East Side Printshop, Yaddo, Byrdcliffe, and the Vermont Studio Center. Her work has been reviewed in Art in America, the Brooklyn Rail, and Hyperallergic.
