Amanda Jackson

Amanda tells us about her approach…

“My work describes human relationships. I am looking for the universal and the extraordinary in life’s ordinary moments.

The textures of hair, fabric and skin and their luminescent qualities fascinate me in my figure studies. I take a minimal approach to the balancing of shape and tone while exploiting light effects, body language and colour symbolism and a painterly surface to set atmosphere or mood.

I believe in making my work accessible and involving; paintings we can all relate to. I often paint scenes about life rather than simply depicting it. Sometimes there is nostalgia, especially in the images of childhood and street scenes. If you feel a sense of yearning…. ‘wish I was there’, ‘it reminds me of…..’ then I’ve done my job right.”
