Jim Lambie is a Scottish artist who creates vinyl tape floor installations using colourful geometrical shapes on the floors of everyday spaces. He creates angles and lines of contrasting colours, using household tape, to suggest movement and optical illusions that hark back to a kind of 60s timewarp. Once normal everyday rooms become injected with a vibrancy bordering on the psychedelic.
Being a musician (former member of Teenage Fanclub no less) Lambie uses musical references as inspiration, the titles of his work often referring to iconic bands or songs such as The Doors, Morrison Hotel (2005) and Careless Whisper (2009).
His installation work is always unique to the space he works in making each one you come across special.
