Tammy Salzl is a visual storyteller based in Montréal, Canada who uses the familiar trope of children’s stories and fairytales to tell contemporary fables that examine the emotional and psychological complexities of modern life. She received her MFA in Painting and Drawing from Concordia University in 2014. Her work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in Canada, Germany, Mexico and the US. Salzl’s large-scale mixed media installation The Cleansing debuted at Galerie POPOP in Montréal in 2015, and was presented as a Feature Project at Art Toronto 2015. Unfamiliar Selves, a collaborative exhibition with Jude Griebel that debuted at Touchstones Nelson Museum of Art and History in Nelson, BC, Canada in 2015, opened at the Art Gallery of Grande Prairie in Grande Prairie, AB, Canada in January 2017. In summer 2017, Salzl’s solo show, Into the Woods, will open at Two Rivers Gallery in Prince George, BC, Canada.
