André Hemer (NZ,Ger)
The 360 Space
104 Charlton St. New York, NY 10014
André Hemer (born 1981, New Zealand) is a painter whose work explores the intersections between digital media and painting. He received his PhD in Painting from Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney, Australia and his MA from the Royal College of Art, London.
His practice pursues new and alternate modes of representation of painting in a world dominated by digital media. Through slippages in meaning between image and object his paintings continually shift between materialized and dematerialized states. On December 2nd and 3rd Gow Langsford Gallery will present new paintings directly from the artists studio at the 360 Space.
This body of work has been completed during Hemer’s current residency at the International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York – awarded to him as part of the prestigious Paramount Award from the 2016 Wallace Art Awards in New Zealand.
Usually based in Vienna, Austria, Hemer is currently completing a six month residency in NYC.
NOTE: On Saturday December 2nd at 4pm André Hemer and Ms. Helen Klisser During will hold a walk and talk through the exhibition.
