Antje Manser's Botanicals
April 8 - May 28, 2005
[Artspace] at Untitled presented prints and embroidered works by distinguished German-American artist Antje Manser in an exhibition titled Botanicals.
The work in this exhibit reflected Manser's interest in floral elements. The exhibition included large photographic prints onto which she painted, and smaller embroidered gauze works. Antje’s work is reflective of many different cultures. The influence of traditional Chinese ink painting was evident in the delicacy of the embroidered flower designs included in her exhibition at Untitled.
Antje's exhibition at Untitled [ArtSpace] reflected her recent interest in floral elements. The exhibition will include large photographic prints onto which she will paint and smaller embroidered gauze works. Antje’s work is reflective of many different cultures. A gypsy at heart, Antje Manser is never happy with her feet too long in one place. During her last visit to Singapore she was influenced by traditional Chinese ink painting, evident in the delicacy of the embroidered flower designs to be included in her exhibition at Untitled [ArtSpace].
Antje is a prolific artist, exhibiting often and on different continents. Manser’s work has been featured in many solo and group exhibitions, notably the Kunsthaus-Museum in Hamburg, Germany; Deutsche Grammophon in Salzburg, Austria; Price Dewey Galleries in Santa Fe, and the Haus der Kunst in Munich, Germany. Most recently, she studied under the mentorship of Helen Frankenthaler, Kenneth Noland and Wolf Kahn at the Santa Fe Art Institute.
