‘Traces Through The Landscape’ is a solo exhibition at dot-art Gallery by Amanda Oliphant, featuring a new body of work exploring the emotions and ideas the landscape can conjure when walking through it.
Amanda Oliphant graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art at LJMU followed by an MA in Art as Environment at MMU. As an Interdisciplinary Artist, working nationally and internationally, her interests lie within the changing landscape of Art and Ecologies. This new series of work continues her interest in creating artistic interventions that aim to engage the public, discovering hidden layers with shared experiences within art.
The artist says: “The feeling of my footsteps upon a broken path, obstacles I go around, breath-taking vistas that stop me in my tracks, taking my breath away. The noise of crows calling or the beauty of a songbird singing, hidden layers of colour and light, the force of the wind and rain upon my face, and the reassuring warmth of the sun gifting me a feeling of content. All elements that seep into my own consciousness and that remain when I’m back in my studio transferring these experiences through paint – they are a journey of life, they are ‘traces through the landscape’.”
“Painting both outdoors and then back in the studio helps to build a painterly story, expressing many layers that sometimes I have to walk away from, find time to reflect, and then return. They are a reconnection to place, an interpretation of the natural world”.
