Julia Lambright was born and raised in Russia. She received an MFA with Distinction in painting from the University of New Mexico. Previously working in oil, her focus over the last decade has been rooted in traditional egg-tempera painting, a knowledge which she acquired from masters in Russia and the United States. While searching for a personal spiritual experience, Lambright began exploring iconographic canons, formulas, and techniques of 17th century icon painting. Influenced by the icon’s visual aesthetics and its technical construction, Lambright integrates and transforms its principles into a contemporary form of art making.

Of her work, Lambright states, “I am concerned with the inadequacy and impermanence of memory. As I excavate the strata of the past, I build these layers into my paintings, recombining incomplete images and symbols to evoke the emotional experience of moments distant in time and space. Moving from polished surfaces to layered textures, combining issues of self and society, I seek to create arresting and ambiguous imagery that draws the viewer into an ongoing dialogue. In a world that is constantly in flux, my paintings record the process of piecing together ideas, impressions, and fragments of memory into a unified and resonant narrative.
