Ed Lambert uses popular images from television and print media and combines them with textile and print techniques. His work 'Putting Past Indescretions Behind You' was inspired by tattooing and the sub-culture that surrounds the practice. Within the “tribal” style geometric armbands and the Asian inspired dragons, Lambert saw repetitions of classic art historical patterns. In order to more fully coax out these similarities, Lambert began juxtaposing images of these artfully decorated figures (often captured by photographers other than himself) with traditionally revered examples of illumination, such as the Book of Kells, decorative motifs from Art Deco friezes, or fragments of design lifted from Ancient Egyptian artifacts.
