Catalogue of Ambera Wellmann's first monographic exhibition in a public institution, presenting a set of about ten recent paintings, several of which were created for the occasion.
Published following the eponymous exhibition at MOCO Panacée, Montpellier, from October 5, 2019, to January 5, 2020.
Ambera Wellmann (born in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, Canada) lives and works in Berlin.
The sensuality of the painted surfaces and the soft effects of their sheen, the sensation of the speed with which the works are executed combined with the great sense of detail, are all testaments to the artist's mastery of technique. The rendering of the flesh certainly evokes Goya's Saturn Devouring His Son or paintings by Francis Bacon. Through this pictorial tour de force, Ambera Wellmann manages to renew with power and originality the representations of human desire.
