Amanda Ziemele

painting

Amanda Ziemele (1990) is a Riga based artist who keeps her artistic practice open for different explorations. She graduated from the Painting Department of Art Academy of Latvia and later continued with Diploma studies in the Interdisciplinary and experimental painting study programme at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts. Ziemele is interested in the formal qualities of painting, as well as the ideas and contexts floating around it. Her works echo back to the visual gestures used by modernists who were very much inspired by primitive art as well as mysterious ancient runes which keep the secret knowledge of the past.
