Amanda Reeves

Amanda's work engages with the subtle sensations of perception, while at the same time reinforcing the basic need for the physical pleasures of consciously seeing. Addressing issues of how color and pattern influence the physiology of a visual experience, her integration of variance and depth with the opaqueness of overlaid shapes creates an ambiguous space with multi-dimensional readings. Simultaneously, the physicality of her brush stroke and its inferred relationship to the body reflects the sensuality of paint and beauty of uncomfortable colour.
