Melissa Ann Lambert is an artist who creates complex abstract compositions with digitally rendered geometric forms. Melissa’s works tend toward bright, cohesive color palettes and hard edges.
I enjoy the way Melissa uses a similar framing for each image – her works in a series all seem to be the same size and dimensions, which allows for the viewer to focus only on the internal composition and color of a work. Most of Melissa’s recent works are strict abstraction, though the artist does occasionally introduce figures into her pieces – some of these works were discussed in our previous feature of Melissa’s explorations of the self.
The works on Melissa’s portfolio really seem to embrace the digital medium. I like the way the artist maintains a very computerized sense of color. Rather than striving for lifelike color embedded in neutral landscapes, she plays with a very synthetic-feeling palette, with colors that look appropriate for an LCD monitor rather than a canvas.
