Alison Lambert creates large oversized drawings of heads in a technique fairly unique to herself.  Drawings are created, torn, covered, redrawn, pasted over, redrawn until a very compelling palimpsest of hours and hours of drawing is formed.

The resulting work is powerful, raw and has a psychological impact that comes from a wonderfully paradoxical mix of both frailty and brutality.

Her work has improved over the years, becoming increasingly sophisticated, showing depth beyond simply an interesting technique.  My fear is that she will repeat herself ad nauseam.
