“My work is a manifestation of black female liberation. I transform WNBA players into super heroes searching abstract space for a new home that recognizes their greatness, skill, and perseverance.”

Ashley Teamer is a New Orleans-based artist whose work explores the complexities of black femininity through painting, collage, and animation. In both her visual and curatorial work, Teamer uses the object to inform and transform the gallery space. She has been an Artist-in-Residence at Diaspora Vibe Cultural Arts Incubator (Miami), the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, ACRE, and Ox-Bow School of Art. Her solo exhibitions include SneakerBoy Dreams, 4th Ward Project Space, Chicago IL (2017); The Writings On the Wall, Bruce Martin Gallery, Richmond VA (2016); and Booty Galaxy, Joan Mitchell Center, New Orleans, LA (2014). Her work has also been included in group exhibitions at Fort Gansevoort (New York), Antenna Gallery (New Orleans), and SOMArts (San Francisco), among other venues. Teamer received her BFA in Painting and Sculpture from Boston University in 2013.
