A Certain Kind of “Maiden” Voyage of Corey Lamb @ Hashimoto Contemporary, SF

Source Juxtapoz Magazine – Juxtapoz Magazine – Home 

Combining a bright, rich paint palette with cartoonish figures, Corey Lamb imbues weighty societal questions with a wry sense of humor in his fourth solo exhibition with Hashimoto Contemporary, Maiden. The artist explores Western archetypes of women and their sociological and biological double bind: to procreate as the fair maiden or abstain as the old maid. Linking existentialism and eroticism, Lamb attempts to reframe our relationship to sex and sexuality, urging viewers to evaluate how cultural attitudes towards this often taboo subject form personal values, identities, and fates.
