About The Artist
Amanda Pearce makes work based upon her current environment reflecting on the people and places around her. She utilises found objects and materials as well as film and photography to document the every day and things within it that fascinate her. She is interested in blurring boundaries between two territories creating a new environment- crossing reality with fiction, every day and absurdity, and the unlikely with the obvious.
Most recently, Amanda Pearce has been creating playful experiments in a series of childlike investigations as a reflection upon her experience as a primary teacher. She has taken a role reversal, from teacher to student, putting herself in a position where she does not know the outcome and the material itself is in control of what happens next.
