The Harmless Anomalies describes the misbehaviors of hair and facial accoutrement as a trivial and inconsequential defect, while also referring to the band of characters within the portraits that exist as something both human and tangibly alien. Suspended within a void, Winnie's portraits lack body and background to explore not only the core notions of beauty but also those experiences of isolation, anxiety, ambivalence, and discomfort within when beauty deviates from social and biological norm.

Adrienne Kammerer's exquisite graphite drawings depict an ongoing narrative exploring the history of magic set in a fictitious past. Through beautifully rendered figurative portraits and environments, Kammerer intuitively combines historic folklore with documented and imagined instances of magic, mythology and the occult. Drawing influence from the fear and superstitions rooted in childhood, Kammerer's images conjure memories of the past while offering a subtly dark humor indicative of their present existence. Adrienne Kammerer is a self taught artist hailing from Burlington, Ontario. Currently residing in Toronto.
