Miriam Vlaming

You Promised Me

Miriam Vlaming’s large-scale paintings are difficult to place, and not just at first glance. Even when viewed over an extended period of time, their visual reality generates surreal blank canvases. The result is a tug-of-war between abstraction and figuration, transformation and stagnation. Yet Vlaming’s artistic utopias are not romantic, idyllic dream worlds. Instead, they are scenes of broken promises that question the system of remembering and exude disillusionment, abandonment and melancholy. Vlaming’s method of combining image citations from well-known and distant cultural spheres, fragments from the past and present, is a common theme running through the works presented here, all of which date between 2003 and 2008.
