Amanda Reeves

Addressing issues of how color and pattern can influence the physiological principles of an optical experience, Reeves’ work engages with the subtle sensations of perception, while at the same time reinforcing our basic need for the pleasures and physicality of consciously seeing. The integration of variance and depth with the opaqueness of the overlaid shapes is drawn from the flat repetitive patterning of visual information that surrounds us every day; systems of data reduced and compressed to two dimensions on screens and in graphics are reflected in the sensuality of paint and beauty of color.
