Amarie Bergman formulates and makes reductive art. “She likes clean lines (most of the time) and dramatic space, merging design elements into a minimalist’s ethos to produce a graphic style of work.” Michael Shandrick

 

Born in Edmonton, northern Canada, Bergman has been exhibiting art since 1980. Her works are featured in corporate and private collections. Thirteen solo shows have taken place in the past 12 years: in Sydney [Sydney Non Objective (SNO) Quadrant Bearing, Factory 49 The Golden Eternity and H]; Melbourne [Blindside Perlustrata no. 1., Five Walls Projects Neo Violet]; Launceston [Sawtooth ARI A Slow Waltz]; Alice Springs [Watch This Space White Light 8'3"]; and Paris [ParisCONCRET The Rosy Crucifixion and C, Factory 49 Paris Aqua VoVo and Perfect Lie, Abstract Project Une Valse Lente.

 

Her artistic evolution was first documented in an interview with Sand T. Kalloch on artSPACE.

 

She is a contributing writer for the New York based publication, Whitehot Magazine of Contemporary Art, the director of Thin Air, and lives/works in Bunbury, Australia.

 


Amarie acknowledges the traditional owners of the land on which she stands today, the Wardarndi people of the Noongar boodjar, and honours their elders: past, present + future.
