Anne-Marie Creamer - MA Drawing Associate Lecturer
Anne-Marie Creamer’s practice encompasses videos, drawings and paintings, with her exploratory and experimental approach to narrative regularly featuring stories nested within other stories.
Creamer’s works are often inspired by artefacts or chance happenings, such as the 200 letters Transylvanian exile Mikes Kelemen wrote to his fictitious aunt in the 18th century, or her encounter with a group of dancing Székely children in Romania.
Creamer's latest film project, Treatment for Six Characters, is based upon an unrealised film by Luigi Pirandello about his seminal 1921 play Six Characters in Search of an Author. Using a text found in Vienna 25 years earlier, Creamer adapts Pirandello’s plans to make her own film exploring the imaginative possibilities of Pirandello's absent feature.
Creamer’s work is regularly exhibited in the UK and internationally, featuring at museums and galleries including Sogn og Fjordane Kunstmuseum (Norway), Palm Springs Art Museum, Kunstvereniging Diepenheim (The Netherlands), The Sir John Soane’s Museum (London), Apex Art (New York), Draiocht Arts Center (Dublin), Sagacho bis (Tokyo), Galerie der Künstler (Munich) and Spacex (Exeter).
Creamer's work was also featured in The Drawing Book, edited by Tania Kovats (Black Dog Publishing, 2006), and in 2012 she received the Derek Hill Scholarship from the British School in Rome.
