amandine in the garden
Amandine is a French visual artist based in London, UK.After a Fine Art and Textile Degree in Paris, and several years of travels, she begins filling notebooks with alteration, traces, and prints. She collects anything that tell a story and incorporates it into her creations to preserve the moment and explore traces of use and time.Amandine has worked in different parts of the world (South Korea, USA, Philippines, France) and during the past four years in Canada. Today she lives in London, UK, where she teaches Art class, starts new exhibitions, and she still shares her professional life in Toronto.
Between salvaging, accumulation, and conservation my paintings are comprised of fabrics, plants and writings, that have been dyed, layered, worn, and torn. Damaged, swaddled, mended, faded. My collages reveal the work of time, they emphasize memories, objects, pieces of life to keep a link with the past. Protect despite the power of time, a state of trace, a souvenir, a part of yourself already gone.
