Ambera Wellmann, visual artist Exhibition Opening on April 21, 2017 at Suzanne Biederberg Gallery, Amsterdam
|Ambera Wellmann, 2017. Ravenous Night Dour Sins, oil on linen, 90 x 80 cm|
Slipper is an exhibition of new porcelain sculptures by Shary Boyle, and oil paintings by Ambera Wellmann.
Exhibition runs from
22 April to 27 May, 2017
The Canadian artists respond to 18th century European porcelain traditions: seducing through materiality while subverting classical form and subject through uncanny and feminist dialogues. Slipper acknowledges slippage, from surface to shape, from 2D to 3D, and image to object. Dutch artist, filmmaker and writer Ine Poppe will introduce her new freeform ceramic experiments as counterpoint.
Ambera Wellmann (Berlin) is an emerging Canadian artist working in painting, assemblage, photography and video. Wellmann uses porcelain in her paintings as a surrogate for the human form to explore themes of mimesis, violence and affect. She is the recipient of numerous Canadian grants and awards, and has been exhibited widely throughout Canada. The presentation of Wellmann's paintings in our exhibition SLIPPER is her premiere in Europe.
