Amanda Wheatley Art Work.

Welcome to my website. The work shown here is all quite recent. I usually work in oils for painting, but I use most paint and drawing media. I do not have a clear category for the type of work I do, as I may paint something that is in front of me such as flowers or I may paint something to convey an idea or experience through symbols, colour, composition etc. I am interested in how we perceive; not in a physical sense, but in a psychological and phenomenological sense and so my paintings may be fragmented in order to suggest different but linked perceptions.

Depending on the subject I work from sketches and imagination or directly from the subject. For me art involves trying to communicate my own concerns and thus I try to foster my own idiosyncratic ideas for my work. Perhaps because of this I do not enjoy working from photos. Some of my works are more obscure than others and I hope the viewer will be able to find an interpretation in them.
