André Hemer’s startling and seductive works call upon the long tradition of the handmade painting, but also acknowledge the digital imagery that increasingly dominates our experience of the world. Here, the picture plane is transformed into an unsettling and unpredictable space, leaving the question of what is real – and what is not – intentionally up in the air.
