Former Studio Artist from March 2016 – July 2016
André Hemer, born in 1981 in Queenstown, New Zealand, lives and works in Vienna. Hemer studied at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand, and obtained a doctoral degree in 2015 from the University of Sydney.
In his practice André Hemer proposes a new mode of representation in painting, whereby image and form are transferred back and forth between materialised and de-materialised states. His paintings literally re-present the contemporary experience of digital media through the traditional painting object, and in doing expose the most basic changes to our phenomenological experience in the contemporary world.
He exhibited in several cities such as Sydney, Los Angeles, New York, Hong Kong, Copenhagen, London and Auckland.
