Visual Art – Pittsburgh, PA

Karla Lamb was born in Mexico City and grew up in SoCal and West Michigan. She describes herself as a “homesick surrealist” and feels uprooted most of the time. Her style is heavily influenced by her dual heritage, occult ephemera, and surrealist tendencies. She uses collage to represent a landscape of contradictions where androgynous figures live in the ether of broken narratives. The spectator is left to reinterpret satirical pop culture references fused with spiritual allusions. Her mixed-media paintings coax the viewer into embracing a radical and free identity and to fall in love with the duality within themselves. Lamb’s visual art can be seen on the cover of After Happy Hour Review’s second issue. Her visual work has also been featured in Runaway Hotel's first issue and Uppagus zine 11th issue. Lamb also curates DOUBLE MIRЯOR Exhibit while collaborating with other artists and poets in Pittsburgh. ...more
