Recent work by Bethany Lambrou explores the domestic uncanny, she uses hints of strange light to alter the psychological tone of the domestic space. It is the heightened colours and cinematic approach that render these spaces unfamiliar. The richly coloured images create a subtle supernatural feel and give the banal spaces an other-worldly appearance, however on closer inspection their mundane and domestic origin becomes clear. Lambrou uses the objects with in a house to project all kinds of narratives and meanings, forged by memory and imagination, possibly violent or sordid scenarios that create a thrilling and uneasy response. Her simple execution of light shows us that our homes can undeniably become theatrical places where anxiety and beauty can co-mingle.
