Artist’s Statement

When he was a child, the first words that Joel Lambeth ever spoke were Mum, Dad, and then Coke. The images that have been produced in film, television, magazines and other forms of advertising mass media in the later part of the 20th century are not only his artistic tradition, but also his cultural heritage.

His collage works sample images from the maelstrom of popular culture, remixing them and recontextualising them in order to infuse them with personal meaning and describe intimate narratives.

He has taken this bombardment of advertising ballyhoo and a it with inspiration derived from the photomontage of Russian Constructivism and German Dada, to create work that is on one hand an autobiographical chronicle of his experiences, but that also serves as social commentary and cultural observation.
