Annyen Lam is a multi-disciplinary artist whose practice operates in printmaking, paper-cutting and installation. Her work explores the mutable characteristics of perception in relation to one’s experiences with the natural world. Drawing from personal histories of escapism through imagination, Lam creates two- and three-dimensional paper works of fictitious environments while investigating the sculptural possibilities of paper. Lam’s recent paper-cuts examine the tensions inherent in seeking location while experiencing dislocation, as well as our relationship to the ecology of landscape as seen through ancient and modern-day practices. Underpinning all of her work is a discussion on space as an intrinsic part of the human condition, and on how we identify – and subsequently transform – within specific places. Lam is a Toronto-based artist transplanted from Ottawa. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts from OCAD University (2012) as well as the Medal for Printmaking (2012). Her practice includes lithography, screenprinting, cut paper works, installation and book arts. She has exhibited throughout Canada and has participated in shows and print exchanges in Japan, Holland, Russia and Venezuela as well as a number of art fairs including Art Toronto, Love Art Fair 2015 (Toronto), Art on Paper Miami 2015, Art on Paper NYC 2016, Papier Montreal 2015 and 2016 and Art with Heart (AGO) 2016.
