About Body Motion Target #2

This dynamic contemporary circular painting in bright white is by Yvonne Lammerich. The Canadian artist has been exhibiting her uniquely bold work both nationally and internationally for decades. Lammerich is known for her provocative experimental work that often plays with the viewer’s perception. What is real and what is illusion?
The actual scale of the circle is related to the artist’s body—who created this image by extending her arms, paintbrush in hand and moving across the surface of the canvas.
A close examination of this work reveals circles within circles emanating from a defined target. One of a limited series.

“The circular target is not just an arbitrary visual model for a focal point of arrival but is itself inscribed by the primary actions of the body in its fullest extension on a surface.” Yvonne Lammerich

"Yvonne Lammerich's work resists traditional terms when speaking about painting. Her early work defined new terms for pictorial space within painting practice no longer centred on the primacy of vision.” James Campbell, Galerie Clara Maria Sels, Düsseldorf

Yvonne Lammerich was born in Germany in 1946. She emigrated with her family to Canada in 1959. Lammerich attended the Ontario College of Art and also received a master’s in art history from Concordia University in Quebec. She furthered her studies and acquired a Ph.D. from the Université du Québec à Montréal. While pursuing her own art, she also taught at York University, OCAD University, the University of Lethbridge, and Zayed University in Dubai. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally including at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art and is held in numerous private and public collections.
