Amanda Ziemele is an artist who keeps her artistic practice open for different explorations. Amanda Ziemele graduated from the Visual Arts Department of the Art Academy of Latvia gaining a Bachelor's degree in Painting. She completed diploma studies in the study programme of Interdisciplinary and Experimental Painting at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts and was awarded by German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) with a Post-Graduate Scholarship. Since then Ziemele has held several solo shows, participated in various collaborative and art projects in Latvia and internationally. She is interested in formal qualities of painting, as well as the ideas and contexts around it. Ziemele uses site-specific settings that trigger situational associations. As a result, interventions are formalised through the medium specific peculiarities whereby the spatial and aesthetic experience is mediated via humorous strategies inviting paradoxical.
