Amanda Manitach

Amanda Manitach’s imagery invokes issues surrounding female psychology, physicality, and sexuality. Bold, honest, and at times dark thoughts are shared in text, which melts into a soft feminine pattern sourced from a 1885 French wallpaper sample. Her large-scale drawings address the historical, often-gendered psychology of the decorative arts. The pieces are inevitably smudged, worn and covered with fingerprints where the artist’s wrists, hands, knees and limbs have come into contact with the paper, transforming the “pretty” pattern into a record of her thoughts and physical struggle to create.
