"The Long Road Home" Annette Nieukerk

May 9 - July 2, 2024

A painting of the backsides of a nude couple walking along a long road holding hands, with two large birds flying above them.

An Amelia Douglas Gallery solo exhibition by Vancouver-based artist Annette Nieukerk that explores the concepts of aging, memory, and identity within the framework of beauty standards.

"The multi-media paintings of Annette Nieukerk question the notions of beauty and identity within the framework of our culture.  As a female figurative artist now in her seventies, the focus of her work is the aging body, challenging and breaking down stereotypes that equate beauty solely with youth and that confront a dominant negative perception towards aging. 

Her latest series ‘the long road home’ evokes the sensuality and desire that can exist at advancing years, the intensity of emotion and intimacy pulling two people together, and the deep yearning for connection buried in the human psyche"
