Amanda’s new studio in West Kirby called ‘a p o – a r t ‘ will show a collection of new works from her ‘Reflective Landscapes’ series.
Amanda is an International Artist, an active member of Markmakers, (a collective based at The Brindley Runcorn), and a founding member of POSTliverpool, (arts collective exhibiting and developing International exchanges).
Exhibitions include: ‘Cabinets of Curiosity’ Albert Dock Colonnades, Liverpool, ‘No Place Like Home’ Huyton Gallery, Knowsley Liverpool and this August, ‘Landmarks and Boundaries’ at The Brindley Runcorn until Oct 2016.
For Amanda, completing a degree in Fine Art followed by an MA in Art as Environment, gave a greater understanding as to why her practice is so rooted within Art and Ecology. More recently, this has brought her practice back to the basics of ‘looking’ and capturing the essence of place, more specifically the Dee Estuary and scenes from the Cornish coastline, two specific locations close to her.
Amanda’s realisation that she cannot be ‘landlocked’ has informed a new body of work, bringing a new awareness to these landscapes. Since moving her studio back to the Wirral, after being located in the centre of Liverpool, Amanda is enjoying integrating with local arts projects, developing workshops and creating locally inspired works.
Most recent exhibitions include: ‘Cabinets of Curiosity’ Albert Dock Colonnades, Liverpool Sept 2014, ‘No Place Like Home’ Huyton Gallery, Knowsley Liverpool 14/7/2014 – 11/10/2014, ArtWorldOpen Chester (to be confirmed) April 2015 and WOST Hoylake June 2015.
