Organic form - Winter 2018/19

Amelia graduated with a BA in Fine Art from Falmouth University in 2014.  Since then she has shown her work around the UK both in collaborative and solo exhibitions.  She lives and continues her practice in Brighton.

In her current work she has been exploring natural forms; rock formations, lichen, ice structures, plant and animal cells, wood grains and rust.  As an observer and an artist Amelia has become increasingly engaged with these natural forms and structures that appear within a world where our environments are constantly developing and changing.  She likes to explore these organic forms and their surfaces which have been created naturally without human intervention and draw attention to the work of nature.

Amelia also likes to explore surfaces and objects that have been interrupted and transformed by man and by nature.  These things appeal to her and engage her because the time and history they convey work their mystery on the senses.  The dramatic states of chaos they sometimes achieve show how the deterioration of surfaces and objects can be truly sublime.  She likes to show the relationship between the natural and interrupted: humanity intervening in the forms of nature, frequently discarding what has been borrowed from or transformed in nature, and then nature, eventually, claiming objects back.

Amelia predominantly works in the realms of printmaking to visually explore her concepts which emulates that sometimes erosive, always transformative process in nature.
