Hello, I’m Amanda

I am a New York based interdisciplinary visual artist. My work examines how the personal and collective histories of individuals, families, and communities shape our present. I explore how time is fluid, the past informs the present, and how myths and facts coexist. I examine the relationship between archives, folk art, high art, and low art.  In my practice, I create works that explore the micro versus macro, real versus imagined, and the interplay between what seems and what is. My aim is to understand how the histories of our communities impact our current reality.
