Hauser & Wirth Announces Representation of Ambera Wellmann in Joint Partnership with Company Gallery

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

    International critics have praised Wellmann’s paintings depicting worlds within worlds, with human and animal forms appearing from and dissolving into one another. Her oil paintings are filled with unanchored figures and disembodied faces, shimmering swaths of light and darkness, anachronistic details, and indeterminate spaces, evocative of Renaissance and Baroque masters. They defy hierarchy as they circle and move in defiance of hierarchy, highlighting metamorphosis, vulnerability, and collectiveness. 

    In January 2024, Hauser & Wirth will present new work by Wellmann as a highlight of its stand at the tenth annual edition of FOG Design + Art in San Francisco (18 – 21 January).

    The work of Wellmann has been exhibited at numerous museums and foundations internationally, including Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin (2023); Stavanger Art Museum, Norway (2023); ICA Boston (2022); Palazzo Bollani, Venice (2022); the New Museum, New York (2021); Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, Germany (2021); MAC Belfast, UK (2021); Pond Society, Shanghai (2021); The Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus OH (2021); MoCO, Montpellier (2019); MoMA Warsaw, Poland (2019); Australian Center for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2019); and Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2019).
