BIO

 Amber Helene Müller St. Thomas (b. 1986) is an emerging Canadian artist based in Toronto. Their artistic practice is based in developing performative actions that include interactive elements of touch and multifarious queer gestures. They are interested in communal interaction, materiality, tactility, desire, and the potential for objects to function as both symbols of self and surrogates for intimacy.

Müller St. Thomas holds a BFA from Western University and completed their MFA at York University. They were a beneficiary of the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Master’s Scholarship (2016). Group exhibitions include A National Test Market, (Artspace) curated by Jonathan Lockyer, and Hamilton Now: Subject, (Art Gallery of Hamilton) curated by Melissa Bennett. They were selected as a participating artist for the 2018 Hamilton Supercrawl Arts Festival.
