Rising Stem by Amanda Baldwin
We love the way this piece glistens with an almost metallic sheen.
"The invested attention given to still-life painting by artists over the centuries and its constant reformulation and reflection of society is something I am interested in exploring as well as adding to that ever evolving narrative. During the creation of the composition I’m thinking about riding the line between order and a discombobulation. That can manifest itself in certain aspects like enhanced color, arrangement, scale, transparency, pattern, perspective, flatness and depth. At first glance the paintings may seem straightforward and literal but examining them closer will show signs of subtle disintegration of those assumed realities. Varied degrees of representation and rendering allow me to focus on specific ideas projected onto everyday objects and vessels. Mundane and inanimate items like fruit can take on anthropomorphic qualities by zooming in and blowing up certain attributes. Overall the paintings can be both familiar and uncanny, a sort of déjà vu." - Amanda Baldwin
