Abby Lammers, a native of Missouri, has been a working artist for 24 years and maintains studios in East Falmouth, Massachusetts, and Rochester, New York. After working in the advertising industry for 13 years as an art director, she launched her painting career in 1994.
A love for design is clearly apparent in her landscape and still life paintings where she presents ordinary objects and scenes in a refreshing contemporary representational style. The information for her paintings is gathered primarily by working from life and working plein air. Using a range of palettes, Lammers explores how color changes the appearance and relationships of objects to one another. Her eclectic combinations of color, form and asymmetrical composition force the viewer to reconsider their perspective on the everyday.
“My process starts by working directly from life with the main focus being on composition/design and rendering the structure of the subject,” she says. “If I feel like the original piece has ‘legs’
I will move on to numerous value studies from which
I then create various color studies, experimenting with different palettes and color temperatures.”
Her work has been featured in numerous group and solo shows at museums, cultural centers and galleries throughout the United States. Lammers is represented by the Copley Society of Art, Boston, and her art can be found in Massachusetts at Charles
Fine Arts in Gloucester and Chapman Art Gallery in Cotuit. Her work will be on view in the 64th annual National Juried Exhibition of the National Society of Painters in Casein and Acrylic through July 6, and in Art @ The Museum at Osterville Historical Museum on July 26 from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.
