About

Khamsa II (Yasamine), 2016 Digital c print 14" x 11 inches edition of 50 Set of 3 available for $1250 This image is of a young refugee girl on the shores of Lesvos clutching a (k)hamsa made with life jacket swatches and emergency blankets from the island, the painting was created by tracing the hand of a refugee child and drawing their eyes inside of it. The human condition is the driving motivation behind my work, it’s triumphs, failures, and banality are inexhaustible source material. Using community as a platform for creation, the work is a collaboration with the subjects - as models, fixers, craftsmen, historians, designers - the people who are being described are those who guide the visual narrative. Together, we make work. Aubrey Roemer was born in Rochester, NY. She received her BFA from Pratt Institute and post collegiately attended residencies in the USA, Europe, and Asia, as well as exhibited in galleries and museums both nationally and internationally. She worked as a journalist for Art Observed, specializing in covering the NYC auction season. Roemer has received grants from World Connect and ARTwerk for her work. She has received national and international press for her work, while actively speaking about the role of art and activism, notably with Artshape Mammoth, the Tällberg Foundation, and at the Parrish Museum of Art. Recently, she was a resident at Vermont Studio Center, at 42 Acres in England, and in Taiwan at Kio-a-Thau Sugar Refinery Artist Village. Roemer is working on projects in Nicaragua with La Isla Foundation addressing the CKDnT epidemic among sugarcane workers, painting sails of a pinisi ship while working on environmental issues in Indonesia as the Director of Art and Communications for Oceans Care. Her work was on display this past fall at Pratt Institute’s Dekalb Gallery and in a solo exhibition in Montauk’s Gallery at the Terrace. Currently, Roemer is working 'Khamsa, Sadaqa Jaariyah (Endless Charity): The Refugee Crisis Portrait Project’, an artistic documentation of the crisis made while volunteering in Lesvos and Athens - this work is currently traveling the world on display and will be bound into a book, with a portion of sales going to Greek NGO Desmos for continued relief efforts. The work was previously exhibited at 203 Gallery in Shanghai and CDC center in Bali, the next exhibition will be in this spring at E.Δ.Ω. Contemporary Art Workshop in Athens and at Garner Arts Center in NY.
