Amanda Ziemele (1990) lives and works in Riga. She regards her artistic practice as an open field. The focus of her interest is the formal quality of painting. It is the source for further ideas and associations.
In 2018, the artist completed her diploma studies at Hochschule für Bildende Künste Dresden in the class of interdisciplinary and experimental painting under Chistian Sery.
Her diploma project Gaining Ground was awarded the Diploma Prize 2018 by the Friends of the HfBK. She was then nominated for the Startpoint Prize 2018. The prize, which is aimed at graduates of art academies, has developed in the sixteen years of its existence from a national exhibition of diploma theses to a prestigious international project in which the most outstanding talents of up-and-coming generations of artists from various European countries are presented every year.
In the exhibition titled Lamprey, Amanda Ziemele explores the process of monotype for the first time.
