Amanda Prowse

I love Amanda Prowse's layered and collaged drawings, some of which reference the organs of the body, others of which utilize recycled materials and explore repetitive pattern and shape. "Placenta," the top piece pictured here, is red ink drawn on tracing paper and layered over clumps of red thread. Amanda utilizes her background in textiles (including felt making and tapestry weaving) and printmaking to explore themes of birth, mortality and metamorphosis. She relates the lines of her markmaking with lines of thread and is interested in "condensing form to its simplest point." Amanda has exhibited in many galleries around London, her hometown. She was born in the year of the Tiger, and likes really good music.
