Drawings for 3 Rooms in Your Home: #1

Whenever asked, "How long did it take you to make this?" I always respond, "My whole life up to that moment." And it's true. I never liked the idea that someone could just buy my work. I develop ideas forever, then struggle with finding a way to execute them that makes sense, often traversing through several iterations. And then someone writes a check and that's the end. What? I work too hard on this stuff. Simply paying for it and hanging it on a wall is too easy. I don't want anything I do becoming another inanimate object that decorates someone's home. I want more. I want ramifications! So I came up with this. This feels more like a real transaction. Yes, you get to own something I made, but you also accept some responsibility. Put this on your wall and you have to be more honest as a result. It's more than just an image, it becomes a point of interaction with everyone who comes into your home. It's simple ink on paper, but wherever it hangs, there're social implications. It's not for everyone.
Steve Lambert | See All Editions
Steve Lambert’s father, a former Franciscan monk, and mother, an ex-Dominican nun, imbued the values of dedication, study, poverty and service to others–qualities which prepared him for life as an artist. For Lambert, art is a bridge that connects uncommon, idealistic or even radical ideas with everyday life. In 2008, Lambert worked with hundreds of people on The New York Times Special Edition, a utopian version of the paper announcing the end of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and other good news. In 2011, he built a 20x9-foot sign that reads CAPITALISM WORKS FOR ME! and allows passersby to vote TRUE or FALSE; he is touring it across the United States. He has collaborated with groups from the Yes Men to the Graffiti Research Lab and Greenpeace. He was a Senior Fellow at New York’s Eyebeam Center for Art and Technology and founded and currently co-directs the Center for Artistic Activism.
