Tammy Salzl tells contemporary tales through multiple media. Her luscious watercolour portraits, shown at Art Toronto 2014, told psychological stories of the relationship between sitter and artist through flesh, skin, and posture. For 2015, dc3 Art Projects presents an ongoing series of allegorical meditations on contemporary life through the trope of children’s tales and scavenged images of animals internet famous for their otherness. Lovingly rendered works in collage, gouache, and watercolour appear to offer near saccharine views of childhood but quickly reveal darker sides of human nature as humanized animals fall prey to animalistic children. Large oil on canvas paintings present contemporary fables, beautiful in delivery and haunting in content and image. Large installations utilize found and created video, sound environments, and hand-worked paper constructions as Salzl transforms her small drawings into immersive experiences such as The Cleansing, an Art Toronto 2015 feature project, and a sculpture created for the fair, Making Ready. Tammy Salzl, a visual storyteller based in Montreal, completed her MFA in Painting and Drawing at Concordia University (2014). She has exhibited in solo exhibitions across Canada and in Berlin, as well as curated group exhibitions in Canada, the US and Mexico City. Her work is held in private and corporate collections and has been featured in Border Crossings and online portals such as Beautiful Decay.
