Amanda Gentry, "Pedestrian"
“Pedestrian” is a 2018 terracotta with rainbow beach aggregate and mason stained earthenware slip sculpture by Amanda Gentry. Amanda Gentry’s work is the merger of a technical and emotional ceramicist. Infusing each work with impeccable craft to underlie the specificity of each form, Gentry creates sculptures filled with care and intimacy. Assembled from flat pieces, then smoothed through sanding, she forms curved bases that gently sway with a subdued playfulness. These inflated shapes are both strong and pillowy, a reminder that softness can be strength as well. Amanda Gentry (b.1973, Long Beach, California) is a Chicago-based sculptor working in clay. Her work is the result of dedication to form, material, and process, driven by a determination to reveal what is essential at the exclusion of the non-essential. She is a DCASE grant recipient and exhibits work nationwide, recently exhibiting at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts (San Angelo, Texas). Gentry received a BFA in Design with a minor in Sculpture from Boston University.
