Artist Tour with André Hemer
Saturday, 6 May 2017
Yavuz Gallery, Gillman Barracks, 9 Lock Road, #02-23
This talk is free and open to the public.
Yavuz Gallery will be holding an artist tour with André Hemer in conjunction with the highly anticipated opening of his first solo exhibition titled IRL in Singapore. For his artist tour he will be walking audiences through his practice that explores the role of painting in a world dominated by digital media and the slippages in meaning between object and image. He will also talk about his unique painting style, which combines both elements of digital experience and traditional painting techniques.
Hemer is currently one of the most exciting artists of his generation. He has been featured on the cover of Thames and Hudson’s publication and project 100 Painters of Tomorrow and picked as The Guardian newspaper’s top 10 “Stars of Tomorrow”. In 2016 he was awarded the prestigious New Zealand Art Foundation New Generation Award and the Wallace Arts Trust New Paramount Award with a six-month residency in ISCP, New York.
