Artist statement – Amanda Thompson

Amanda Thompson

In this body of work l have used industrial motifs namely the now defunct briquette factory.

l live close to this behemoth and have been fascinated by it for years.

l think it’s because in Morwell there’s many relics symbolising the decline of capitalism.

 I have intended to abstract my images more and use colour to assist in layering the surfaces.

The push toward abstraction l think indicates my interest in formalism.
