Event Description

Lois Lambert Gallery presents the work of artist Rikki Niehaus in her ongoing series, “Swedish Landscapes”, a collection of portraits posed inside the home-interiors of an IKEA store. The suited gentleman who serves as the subject of the paintings is a perfect fit for the setting. In fact, he is just another shopper, stopping to sit on a chair or a sofa. The series serves not only as a critique of consumer culture, but as a mirror to its artificiality and the illusions that we accept and desire, as reality.This collection of oil paintings may seem benign, but they are in fact eerily engaging and humorously critical. The series serves not only as a critique of consumer culture, but as a mirror to its artificiality and the illusions that we accept and desire, as reality.
