Amanda Wheatley Art Work.

Welcome to my website. 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 idiosyncratic concerns and ideas. Some of my drawings and paintings are more obscure than others and I hope the viewer will be able to find an interpretation in them.
