pigdogandmonkeyfestos | Issue 2 | The Artists Part 2

Part 2 of our look at the contributing artists in PIGDOGANDMONKEYFESTOS Issue 2 focuses on Peter Lamb, Emma Holmes and Plastique Fantastique.

Peter Lamb, ('Studio Floor')
Peter Lamb was born in 1973 and lives and works in London. In 1996 he graduated from the Camberwell School of Art, London.

Peter Lamb looks like a nice guy, painting's Jamie Oliver perhaps. In his paintings, collages, and photos, he unleashes mighty visual forces of weirdness, chaos, and desire. - 
Jasper Joffe.

Peter Lamb’s paintings promote inscrutability about meaning with concentrations of strokes, shapes and textures. Gestures are his own and, conceivably, other people’s; authorship cannot be vouched for throughout an expanse of painting. Some elements are clearly not actual, physical registrations (and, therefore, marks of authenticity) but marks that have been photographed, with the photograph then worked upon by being overlaid with new matter. What is more, the photograph reproduces shapes that could fall outside the general ambit of aesthetic consideration.

Emma Holmes  publishes SCHIZM Magazine in the style of zine - Every issue has a different theme and artists are invited to contribute in response to this.

Plastique Fantastique, '99th Plastique Fantastique Communique - What are PIMPZ? What are HOOKERZ?'
Plastique Fantastique -  a collaboration between David Burrows and Simon O’Sullivan (sometimes with others), is a mythopoetic fiction - an investigation of aesthetics, the sacred, popular culture and politics - produced through comics, performances,text, installations and shrines and assemblages.
