André Hemer, IRL
6 May - 18 June 2017 | Tues to Sat: 11am - 7pm, Sun: 1 - 5pm
Gillman Barracks 9 Lock Road, #02-23
Yavuz Gallery is proud to present IRL, the first solo exhibition of André Hemer in Southeast Asia. One of the most sought after artists of his generation, Hemer will be exhibiting a new series of his signature-style canvas works that continue the artist’s exploration of the intersections between digital media and painting. Layered, luscious, flat yet deeply textured, Hemer's works amalgamate traditional and non-traditional approaches to painting, challenging audiences to engage with the impact of digital media and how we consume imagery today.
Hemer has earned international recognition for his work, which includes being on the cover of Thames & Hudson’s 100 Painters of Tomorrow (2014), a publication uncovering the world’s most promising painters from more than 30 countries. He was also named as one of The Guardian’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 Paramount Award.
