AMANACER (Emily Bauman) is a self-taught painter, designer and creative entrepreneur. She has a background in fine art, having been raised amidst a tribe of visual artists from ages 7 to 17 in Haiti. She earned her bachelor degrees in Philosophy, English and French Literature at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo. After several years of photographing her travels and working abroad in development, she obtained a Masters Degree at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs. Now, her Haiti-based studio serves as a creative jump off point for art shows and creative collaborations both locally and across the globe.
Her multi-media art work is informed by a complex cultural identity comprised of opposing traditions. Rich, mythical creatures from opposing traditions find a home on the same canvas. Amanacer's quest to create a sense of belonging as a white-anglophone raised in creole, afro-caribbean culture creates interesting tension in her works. A world of fused symbols, myths and legends of her own making (mermaids!) result, executed with freedom of spirit and a sense of courage.
Recent group shows include the 60th Anniversary of Independence Exhibition in Gunsan, South Korea; 'Selebrasyon' at Affirmation Gallery in New York, and 'Zanmi Destine' at La Lorraine in Haiti. Amanacer started 2017 with two solo resin art shows "Golden Dreams' at the historic Alliance Francaise building in Cap Haitian, and then in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Brooklyn will follow in August. She's just launched a new line of resin furniture in summer 2017 and has accepted boho-luxe interior design projects for the fall. Stay tuned and get inspired on her facebook and instagram!
