Enlightenment at the Getty

Oil Painting

Created by Bonnie Lambert
The patio of the Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California, dazzles at noon.

Bonnie Lambert is a cityscape oil painter compelled by intense color and deep contrast. The fluid light, dramatic vistas, stark landscapes, and energized urban neighborhoods of the West provide endless inspiration for her work.

She paints with a vibrant palette and expressive brushstrokes to capture an essence of the urban experience. Drawn to the tension between nature and the hand-of-man on the landscape, she asks the viewer to observe objects and situations so common that they have become invisible, to see these places and things in a new light, and to consider that they just might be beautiful.

The sides of this gallery-wrapped canvas are painted, so it is suitable for hanging unframed.
