With the new works, Lamar exhibits the gilded jailbed installation, completed Christmas 2017, as a bow to the enormous number of people forced to be absent from their communities and families during the holidays, due to the practice of mass incarceration and the school-to-prison pipeline.Read More

CLIMAGRATION; a solo exhibit by Bea Lamar focusing on the environmental refugee phenomenon haunting nations.
Bea Lamar, a Lebanese-American artist, creates mixed media artworks, photos, and installation work. By applying a poetic and often metaphorical language, Lamar tries to approach the heavy subject in a multi-layered, global manner, involving the viewer interactively.
Her work appears as dreamlike images in which disastrous scenarios and reality meet, meanings shift, and the familiar and the feared merge. Space and Nature evidently play a key role in this exhibit. With a conceptual approach, her work relies extensively on scientific climate data, as well as documentation as a form of resistance against the climate-denying machine.
Concentrating on repeatedly asking the same question over and over, she aims at amplifying the disbelief of the spectator by creating settings that sound a poetic alarm of sorts. The artist states;
"At its core, my work mirrors the scale and diversity at which the balance of nature is disrupted, and the far-reaching consequences of that disruption".
Lamar currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
The exhibit will be on view at Humans Of The Earth Gallery from September 22- October 20th during regular gallery hours, and by appointment at 626.642.8824
