An exhibition of abstract, explosive and stellar paintings by Amanda Christine Cox.
Amanda returns to her spiritual home, London, the vibrant and diverse city where she was born and raised, to present an extraordinary exhibition that subverts contemporary divisive narratives and instead celebrates all of humanity, the Universe’s potentially greatest creation.
Inspired by existential philosophy, Bauhaus ethos, colour theory, and popular discussions on astrophysics; the work combines playfulness and spirituality in gestural marks, texture, colour and material exploration.
Deliberately using bargain bucket materials, available to all, this Masters educated mature artist embraces inclusivity it its broadest sense, taking into account all our human experience of emotion, finance, sexuality, race and faith, and most of all, neurodiversity (as an ADHD adult she is very much an outsider and rebel), as well as any other infinite variety of marvellous human life.
We Are All Made of stars will pull you in, dazzle you, and intrigue you, with its deceptive simplicity.
