Living Room Volume 1 - Tracey Lamb, 19 August 2020

Living Room is an ongoing series of short films by visual artist Nina Sanadze.

Each film presents a portrait of a Melbourne artist captured in their home studio and sometimes at their job too.

Recorded on a smartphone in between Covid lockdowns, the films blend domestic and political, private and public creating personal, insightful biographies of artists and living conditions of our time. 

Tracey Lamb is a sculptor who works mainly with welded steel from her home studio in Melbourne. She has created a range of large to medium-sized, modular, site-specific, welded installations that reference geometry found in architecture and design and often refers to the stories and works of women who have been erased from these related histories.

She is also currently working on a series of smaller welded sculptures made from steel sheets. The works are finished in clear-coated polished steel to reveal the gestural marks of their construction or alternatively painted over in a variety of colours. These smaller abstract works generally acquire their form from fragments of domestic or interior design.

Tracey completed a Master of Fine Arts at Monash University in 2018 and has a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Visual Art) Honours from the Victorian College of the Arts (2013) as well as qualifications in Interior Design and Decoration. Her work has been shown throughout Australia and internationally.
