About the Art
What the artist saysTearing colored paper, begging this inanimate object, this unfamiliar material, to glide in the way I want but these papers are as rebellious as they come. They never tear in the way I want. No matter how much I plan, it never works out the way I was anticipating. I must go by the paper, let it take complete control.
Why we like itWithout pen or brush, Amelia creates visually impactful works using only her hands and the paper. We love the vulnerability in succumbing to the will of the page and the way in which it chooses to tear.
Where we hang itThis colorful work will add bold hues and texture to any monochromatic space, but don’t be afraid to place it in a more maximalist setting; it will hold its own amongst the most vivid of tones.

“Every image has been prepared with an unconscious abandonment. There is no plan, everything was invented to be cast into the emptiness without knowing its final destination.”
