Winner of Flourish Award 2016 & Intaglio Printmaker Prize
Amy-Jane Blackhall's work emerges from her fascination with the concept of interconnectedness, through the physical and spiritual act of making, particularly the repetitive nature of print.
Underlying structures are central to Amy-Jane's imagery; derived from sacred places, she frequently references archetypal symbols, Oriental art and Eastern ideologies. Recurring themes in her work reflect on how the universality has a strong aesthetic appeal transcending space and time, language and culture.
In 'Fountain' the strong triangular peak dominates whilst the painterly carborundum emboss seeps beyond the elemental framework. The ambiguous source of downward flow alludes to both the mystical and physical.
