Amelie von Wulffen

A banana has stage fright. A tooth walks with crutches. A lemon gets angry at an apple. An ice-cream cone goes sledding. A paintbrush goes to an exhibition opening. A hammer comforts a nail. Two glasses of wine just had sex, and have a smoke.

In Amelie von Wulffen’s watercolours, common objects become animate subjects, complete with personalities, moods and plenty of opinions.
