Ahmri Vandeborne is an interdisciplinary artist using her roots in traditional mediums including Painting, Printmaking, and Drawing to create media-based installations. Using shadow imagery and various methods of light manipulation as a vehicle between natural and artificial elements, her work focuses on fleeting interactions and obstructions, to understand concepts of ephemerality. She collaborates with light, the viewer, artists, nature, and found objects, as a way to shift her methods of abstraction and to create immersive environments to alter the viewer’s way of navigating a space.
Ahmri holds a Bachelor of Arts Honours in Studio Art from the University of Guelph, where she also completed minors in French and Art History. She is co-founder of Otherwise Studios in Guelph, Ontario, an inclusive studio space for art-making and community building, offering diverse opportunities for collaborating, teaching, innovating and mess-making.
