VSW (Visual Studies Workshop) in Rochester presents:
Dividing Roadmaps by Timezones: Ten years of moving pictures 1999-2009
This program of work reflects Amanda Dawn Christie’s restless growth as an artist. Moving from hand processing to hand scratching and optical printing, she layers memories and images in an effort to explore her past. Train trips, relationships, and her efforts to plumb the depths of the image all contribute to an ever changing evolution of her work. Working in both B&W and colour, she moves between 16mm and super 8, always relying on an inner intelligence and a love of the image to guide her way through the technology.
