"Re-Presenting Friends" is a collection of paintings by Sylvia Ziemann. The artist asked eight of her female friends to choose a woman, real or fictional, that she felt kinship with or had been influced by. Ziemann then, in negotiation with each person, created a painting that combined the friend with the admired woman. The exhibition also includes representative works made by the friends themselves.
This exhibition is curated by Diane Dickert.
Sylvia Ziemann is educated at the Alberta College of Art (diploma in Fine Arts, 1979-1983), the University of Calgary (1984-1985), the Banff Centre School of Fine Arts (1985), and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax (Bachelor of Fine Arts, 1985-1986).
