Tammy Salzl. The Chorus, 2011. Oil on canvas.

Into the Woods

Tammy Salzl

Based in Montreal, Salzl is a painter working in oil and canvas, and in smaller scale, on paper. Salzl draws from her own experience as a mother of a transgendered child and in doing so, connects to fundamental ideas of self and identity. Her work focuses around representations of curious characters often placed in improbable locations, for example, a chaise longue in the middle of a forest. They are often rendered in lurid colour schemes, at times seeming hurt or vulnerable, at other times oddly sage, comfortable, and at peace in a world where seven-legged lambs, and other creatures, populate her paintings. Rich in allegory, Salzl's work examines gender and identity by honouring the individual and the sense of self.
