The word ‘Winter’ is included in many of Lambrecht’s recent works. The artist explores the poetics of seasonality and acknowledges the starkness of winter in her new surroundings in Broadstairs on the Kent coast, where winter brings cold weather, a lack of colour, and less light in the day. The word ‘winter’ appears in Lambrecht’s monochromatic works and in the darker sections of her more colourful paintings; the word subsequently becomes attached to the notion of a chromatic deficit and forces the viewer to look harder (or elsewhere) for brighter colours. The connection to seasonality in Lambrecht’s work is inevitably attached to an interest in temporality.
In other paper works, the artist depicts and references the Sun, Moon and Earth in order to further expand the scope with which she considers the concept of time. She is interested in natural time and the astronomical factors which provide the basis for humanity’s attempts to understand time, and to subsequently divide it into months, seasons and years.
