Vernissage April 25/15, 3-6 PM
W-Sa 12-5 PM
Tammy Salzl is a Montreal based artist using multiple media to explore psychological spaces within individuals and society. Mediating familiar but challenging imagery with rigorous attention to skill and craft, she unmasks vulnerabilities in both the subject and viewer through layers of paint, pigment, and collage. In Montreal during Papier 15 we are pleased to present two recent projects from Salzl’s corpus of work.
At the fair we offer a selection of watercolours from simplest of gestures, a series of raw and frank psychological stories contained within the churning flesh of bodies anchored in simple spaces. Directed gazes inculcate the viewer in the emotional state of the subject, involving them in intimate and sometimes uncomfortable realities. Calling them “beautiful parasites”, Salzl strives to draw the viewer in with an affective experience that slowly evolves to alter the viewers perception.
The Cleansing is an offsite presentation of a new paper and intermedia collage installation at the Belgo Building,372 Ste Catherines from April 22 to May 9 2015. This handwrought installation of painted and printed paper, HD video projection and digital media with dual soundtrack brings her psychological spaces into an immersive realm. Based on small collaged paintings on paper, Salzl tells tales of contemporary life and anxieties through imagery reminiscent of children stories and fables.
Tammy Salzl completed her MFA at Concordia in Painting and Drawing and has shown across Canada and in Berlin and Mexico.
