Hauser & Wirth Publicizes Illustration of Ambera Wellmann in Joint Partnership with Firm Gallery


Hauser & Wirth’s co-presidents, Iwan Wirth, Manuela Wirth and Marc Payot, have introduced the gallery’s illustration of Nova Scotia-born, New York-based artist Ambera Wellmann.

Worldwide critics have praised Wellmann’s work depicting worlds inside worlds, with human and animal kinds showing from and dissolving into each other. Her oil work are full of unanchored figures and disembodied faces, shimmering swaths of sunshine and darkness, anachronistic particulars, and indeterminate areas, evocative of Renaissance and Baroque masters. They defy hierarchy as they circle and transfer in defiance of hierarchy, highlighting metamorphosis, vulnerability, and collectiveness. 

In January 2024, Hauser & Wirth will current new work by Wellmann as a spotlight of its stand on the tenth annual version of FOG Design + Artwork in San Francisco (18 – 21 January).
