Show at Civilian Gallery, Opening Saturday December 4, 5-8pm
Civilian Art Projects presents “Bridget Sue Lambert & Jessica van Brakle: Personal Odyssey,” opening December 4, 2021 and on view until January 8, 2022 at the gallery’s temporary space at 1314 21st Street in the Dupont Circle / West End neighborhoods of Washington, DC.
The epic poem The Odyssey by Homer is a story about a long journey home. Bridget Sue Lambert and Jessica van Brakle interpret this journey like a Siren, using mysterious narratives to lure the viewer into an ambiguous and strange environment. Using obsessively staged photographic sets and highly detailed, multi-layered collage, the works fragment scenarios derived from history, movies, fantasy and the natural world. Through the exacting placement of objects that hold secret significance to each series, the artists create complex new and highly personal worlds.
See you there!

Washington Post quick review here by Mark Jenkins,"...sensuous blob of a sculpture from which leaf-like paper prints sprout."

The show also celebrates the artists resilience to create during a pandemic. Some how each pair found ways to communicate their ideas, and ways to create the art…safely and vibrantly. It emphasizes the optimistic hope that we are not alone and that by working collaboratively, we actually create more.
