After graduating as an Industrial Designer Amanda Wilkinson worked in NZ and the UK designing products for international companies, eventually returning to NZ to raise a family. Here she began painting and exploring adding an aspect of three dimensionality to her artwork, continuing her interest in form and detail.
“Recently I’m interested in exploring how we can have hazy memories of a space that we can’t really quite bring into focus, though the memory still feels clear… like how dreams don’t quite make sense, or you can remember a feeling in a dream but only some of the visual details. I’m enjoying the increased ambiguity that this brings to my paintings, an evolution of earlier work exploring illusions of sometimes impossible three dimensional forms.” Amanda Wilkinson
