Amanda Dunbar

Art has a language all its own. The language of my art is not limited to the dialogue between the process of painting and the surface of the canvas alone, but also embraces a dialogue between the viewer’s emotional experience and their perception through sight. When a subject is deemed “worthy” of being made into a work of art, the viewer has an opportunity to view that subject in a different way. It is important to me that I respect the viewer’s dignity, spirituality and humanity while conveying these messages predominantly through color, texture and representation.

Communication is achieved in many provocative ways. For me, the process of painting in oil, my instinctively chosen medium, allows me a sensual catharsis among liaisons with color, smell and touch. The tactile whispers of this medium compel me to create art that honors who I am as a person and to create works that speak to those who share my muse or find inspiration among my processes. It is both an honor and a responsibility to communicate in this way. Mine is the communication of but one voice. I want that message to be heard, seen, felt and experienced.

Perhaps due to my youth, I am driven to explore the wonders of simple experiences, nature and the sacred values of humanity among seemingly hostile climates. A major theme that reoccurs in my artwork is the idea of facets; by this I mean different levels of meaning; many parts making up a whole. Mine is a confusingly complex world. As I learn and mature both physically and artistically, I strive to achieve greater understanding while I capture worthy subjects with honesty and grace. I will forever be a student.

Art is communication. Art seeks to inform. Information is power. Art equals power. Amanda Dunbar
