Here, There & Nowhere Landscape paintings by Andrea von Wichert

Artist Andrea von Wichert Explores Landscape in Post-Human World

On October 29 at Golden City Fine Arts, multi-disciplinary artist Andrea von Wichert opens a new solo show of landscape paintings, based on travels to the Orient and deep into the Canadian wilderness. Unplugging from cell phones, the Internet, and traveling solo and silent to confront her subject matter, the show features paintings done en plein air in the field and worked up from photos.

Sitting outside at the mercy of bugs and inclement weather is the antithesis of visual experience in our technology-mediated view of the outside world, an act of absurdist rebellion. These paintings celebrate the joy and awe of the solitary human in the midst non-manipulated and manipulated nature, focusing on light, movement and the centuries-old technology of the paintbrush.

Andrea von Wichert has been painting in film and theatre for 15 years and has been fiercely making room for her own artistic practice for the last decade. Most infamous for her film collaborations with Arlea Ashcroft “Snapperdoodle—the Movie!!!’ and “Dead Mothers and Kitchen Floors”, von Wichert has also been recognized nationally as a writer and performer. Painting remains her most beloved spiritual discipline.

The exhibition runs from October 29 to November 25 at Golden City Fine Art, 211 Pacific Avenue.

Artist’s reception at 7:00 pm on the opening evening.

Gallery times are Tuesday and Wednesday 12:00 – 5:00 pm, Thursday and Friday 5:00 -8:00, weekends after noon, and by appointment....goldencityfineart@gmail.com 204.416.7789 or avw@mts.net 204.779.5162.
