André Hemer’s practice pursues a new mode of representation in painting, whereby image and form are transacted back and forth between materialised and de-materialised states. In doing so, Hemer’s paintings literally re-present the contemporary experience of digital media through the traditional painting object, revealing the most basic changes to our phenomenological experience of the contemporary world.
André Hemer’s work has been exhibited at Luis De Jesus Los Angeles; Yavuz Gallery, Singapore; Kristin Hjellegjerde Gallery, London; Tristian Koenig Gallery, Melbourne; Total Museum of Contemporary Art, Seoul; and Münchner Stadtmuseum, Germany. In 2016 he was awarded a New Generation Award by the Arts Foundation of New Zealand, and was the winner of the Wallace Arts Trust Paramount Award. He has been included in major publications such as 100 Painters of Tomorrow, Thames & Hudson, London, and Art and the Internet, Black Dog Publishing, London. In 2016 Hemer was invited to edit the publication Painting Regarding the Present, published by Naives and Visionaries, Berlin. He is based in Vienna, Austria.
