Drawing inspiration from her own personal life and an interest in psychological processes, Amanda is fascinated by how habits and behavioural patterns show themselves through her painting process.
For Horwood, painting is a process of exploration, where the final image is the treasure to be found. Each piece reveals memories, friends, and loved ones taking shape through the marks and impressions left by Horwood and her brush as she makes them. Her grandmother, a successful Swedish icon painter, has also left a strong impression on Horwood's identity as an artist.
The Hook's Take: Amanda Horwood's works are bold and impactful. Upon close inspection, you begin to feel the artist's range of emotions.
