NICE TO MEET YOU,
MY NAME IS EMBER DE BOER.
Recently, I have been creating works centered on ethnic and environmental research with a focus on historical representation and identity through abstract forms and experiments with material. I am creating a series of psycho-analytic abstract sculptures and creations that challenge identity through physical and conceptual deconstructionism.
De Boer is Dutch for “of the farm” or “of the land”. A name taken from my Dutch ancestry; I center my body of work on sustainable and ethically-critical environmental artwork. I utilize multi-format technology- including lights, lasers, and audio, for my studio practice and work by assemblage of organic texture. Painting with layers of broken glass by accumulation of touch, to make abstract geometric forms that are deeply emotional.
I am the Board President and Resident Artist at Community Shop Class, a local Neighborhood Learning Center focused on sustainability, training, workforce development, and neurodivergent learning. I have been a member of the exhibition committee for Women’s Eco Artis Dialogue for the last year, immersing my knowledge of environmental and research based art practices. As an entrepanuer, I an apart of the Nation Women’s Business Owners Assossiaction- the Sacramento Valley Chapter.
Feel free to reach out and ask questions, inquire about the work or my inspiration, or connect with me over any opportunities.
