Amanda Gentry, "You Are Here"
This partially glazed dark brown stoneware sculpture combines all the building block shapes of geometry. Depending on the point of view, this sculpture appears triangular, circular or square. Despite its geometric quality, it maintains an organic feel through gently curved planes. 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 received her BFA in Design from Boston University, College of Fine Arts, where she minored in Sculpture and Art History. She has had solo shows at Brainforest Gallery, Hyde Park Art Center, Lillstreet Annex Gallery, and a two-person show at Matthew Rachman Gallery. Amanda Gentry is a MANA Contemporary artist and lives and works in Chicago.
