Gold leaf & watercolour
Nature in its infinite beauty, ever-changing cycles and enduring calmness are a constant inspiration to Janine Lambers. The subtle qualities and lustre of gold leaf is the artist’s chosen medium to reveal her subject in its full luminescence.
Lambers has a deep understanding and reverence for the gilding craft, refining ancient techniques of gilding with gold, silver and platinum leaf. She works intuitively with this refined palette of subtle hues and shades to skilfully form an image from the individual fragments, revealing her true mastery of the medium.
