Arts: Célia Bai Lambert exhibiting at the 2014 NYC Synchronicity – New York, NY

The art of Célia Bai Lambert will be featured June 10 through July 1 at the New York City 2014 Synchronicity exhibit, promoted by the Agora Gallery.

Born in Maputo, Mozambique, Célia Bai Lambert grew up in Portugal and currently lives in Switzerland. She has exhibited all around Europe as well as in the United States.

Lambert’s painting style has been described as “intensely emotional.” She uses acrylic, sometimes mixed with sand, watercolor, chalk, and charcoal applied by brush, knife, and hand. She paints human bodies “that tell their own stories through wildly bent posture, twisted faces, and the explosiveness of their textures. Backgrounds are left white; the figures speak for themselves.”

Lamberts’s artist statement says: “My paintings are all about emotions and feelings, so I guess it’s all about sharing. I like the idea that a person who sees what I do either loves it or hates it – but never feels indifferent! The reaction of people to what I do inspires me a lot so I try to give that inspiration back. I never know what I will be doing until I get started – it all depends on my state of mind. When I need to tell a secret to everyone without using words I paint…”

Established in 1984, in the heart of Chelsea’s fine art district in New York, the Agora Gallery is a contemporary fine art gallery supporting the initiatives of art organizations throughout the world, in an effort that leads to a better understanding of cultural identity.
