Amanda Power – Shadows
Shadows examines the body in transition, exploring time-based changes that the body experiences. The human body goes through physical, emotional and mental shifts during the aging process. Created over the past two years, Shadows works mainly with figurative images. In each piece the body’s presence acts as a platform, in which the viewer may explore both the physical and emotional attachments inherent in our relationship with the natural world.
