Jim Lambie (1964) is one of Scotland's foremost artists. Together with Claire Barclay and Simon Starling, he represented Scotland at the Venice Biennale in 2003 and was short-listed for the Turner Prize in 2005.
Lambie makes art from materials and objects he has to hand. As well as mirrors, vinyl records and men’s shirts, he transforms record sleeves into sculptures, and ladders and tape into installations, turning even the most commonplace objects into sources of enchantment.

About the Artist
Jim Lambie’s playful and imaginative work in collage, installation and sculpture creates an immediate visual impact and shows his interest in the psychology of space and colour. Using materials such as glitter, paint, mirror and vinyl tape, he assembles, alters and embellishes rooms and ordinary objects such as chairs, clothes, doors and posters. Lambie’s work reflects his everyday surroundings and makes sharp-eyed references to aspects of contemporary society whilst letting us get close to his working processes and experiments carried out in his studio.
