Amanda Blake

Today I thought I would post the beautiful work of Amanda Blake......Inspired by religious and literary symbolism, art history, superstition and found photography she works to create narratives that are at once familiar and mysterious. Her paintings often features groupings of figures; families, couples, siblings, friends, both to explore the dynamic that can be created in a piece through small gestures and glances and to create a narrative people can identify with emotionally. Current obsessions and inspirations include imaginary friends, consumerism, superstition, fortunetelling, wildflowers, places she's never been and never plans on going to, the colors of faded Polaroids, and other people's family snapshots.
