Style: Abstract


Statement:
German-born artist Andrea Amelung is deeply devoted to the experimentation of process. She has developed a special method that incorporates a variety of mediums to produce intense colors that shimmer and radiate from the canvas. Amelung is a traveler at heart, with journeys and extended stays in many locales around the world. These experiences have served her well as an artist, collecting ideas, materials, and skills along the way. Since 1995, she has studied and painted in various artist studios, master classes, and workshops, efforts that have broadened her understanding of experimental processes and the practice of painting as a whole.
The extraordinary results of Amelungs diligent efforts are easy to discern. Her work, completed in a contemporary abstract expressionist style, is stunning to behold. Her achievements with texture produce a weathered, time-tested appearance to the application of paint. Other works are approached with gradations of a particular hue, to allow for the richest expression of the dominant color. Geometric forms and gestural lines are scrawled into or on top of the paint, evoking both modern and ancient art forms. Amelung will often employ raw pigments combined with unusual painting media such as modeling plastic, sand, ash, and marble dust. Her superb layering effects are also achieved by applying washes of beeswax and then scraping sections to reveal the layers below, providing a potent sense of texture and depth. Beyond testing the limits of the painting process, art for Amelung is a means to express emotions that are not easy to verbalize or represent. Abstract art is a visceral, instantly accessible plane of discourse with her audience. "Art is a means for me to capture different moods and situations from my life," she states. "My paintings hope to inspire, make curious, deliver surprises and radiate optimism, positive associations and joy of life." Amelung has exhibited and sold to private collectors around Europe and she lives and works in Berlin and Spain.


Bio / Resumee / Statement:
Art training/Art academies:
ArtCenter South Florida, Miami, Freie Universität Berlin, Akademie für Malerei Berlin, Freie Akademie für Kunst Berlin and self-taught.
Main subjects: abstract compositions.
Usual techniques: acrylic, raw pigments, rust and patina, mixed media on canvas.

Techniques:
Acrylic- and Pigmentpaintings
Into my large-sized acrylic paintings I use different materials, like paper, fibers, gypsum or plastic-modelling masses, etc. Everything is applied on in several layers, is washed off partially again and then applied again. On this relief-like structure form will form on which the acrylic colours are then applied. Coloured, luminous paintings with various layers and overlapping structures emerge.
Since 2000 I work with pigments that lend a radiant coloured powdered sugar effect to the paintings. I partly process the pigments with modelling mass, sand, ash or marble dust and apply them in relief-like layers to give the paintings materiality. I use the pure pigment as a color body, powdery and granular.

Rust and Patina
The rust works are created by different oxidation techniques with iron powder, iron filings, sand, copper particles, brass and bronze chips and various rust solutions.

Chalk works
The haptic white chalk works are created by different mixing techniques of chalk, wire, paper, sand from around the world and marble dust applied in several layers to give each work a haptic texture and a sense of depth. Depending on the light and the sun shining onto the artwork shadows arise and migrate across it which breaths life and dynamic into the work.

Encaustik
It is a very varied form of creation and goes back to a 3000 year-old tradition. In my works bleached beeswax acts as a carrier material of the pigments and at the same time as a protection. The valuable gloss has a long durability. By scraping, scratching, lining, dotting, etc. the Encaustik offers a singular variety to the creation of the painted surface. In my works a constant interplay results from applying numerous layers of wax and partially scraping it off in the constant process of preserving and destroying the work. With the Enkaustik I generate animate thermo-sculptural processes which produce tangible coloured pictures with relief-like structures.

Sand paintings
On my journeys I found that sand from different places in the whole world is different in colour and granulation. I combine the different sand types with iron, copper, wood, etc. to create a harmonious whole. The granulation and colour of the sand give an individual atmosphere to each painting.

Press
» Ico Gallery New York, Curator Eugene Hwang
"02/10/2008 Amelung's meditative paintings are chromatic experiments,
which ambitiously rely heavily on color and simple forms to relate the artist's themes. One gets the sense that all is gingerly placed, though there is a good amount of extemporaneity. Once the paint is brushed on, there is a confidence that it was meant to be, though it might not have come out as planned. There is no such thing as a rehearsal. There is no need for them because there are no mistakes, and so these pieces, while containing a melancholic element, embrace optimism. Any simplicity in good art is only apparent. Amelung takes on the challenge of maximizing expression while keeping color and forms simple. Her solution is texture and allowing her quadrilaterals to have "imperfections." There were never any rulers involved. The result is something that appears simultaneously primitive and modern, ..."
