Amelia Lackmann’s recent paintings combine fragmented architecture and abstraction to create imagined urban sites. Intrigued by the disparate nature of urban spaces and the varying sensations of experience which may be felt from within them, Lackmann’s Boogie Street presents a revelation of ‘the concealed visceral beating, organs of the city’. She plays with the idea of the city as a living entity and draws on the unique personality and character of its urban areas to create a re-invented sense of place.
Amelia Lackmann graduated from her Fine Arts degree at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology in 2008. Since graduating, Lackmann has shown in group exhibitions at Pigment gallery and Carbon Black gallery. This is her first solo exhibition.
