amanda greenberg is an artist living in brooklyn. she studied at the rhode island school of design until 2010, where she used screen-printing to materialize her illustrations. since then, she's tailored her work to conform to restrictive surfaces and self imposed variables. gestures are hand drawn then digitally rendered, rearranged, and designed via abstractions and intuitive decisions.
the design principle she adheres to is that there is no absolute. instead, there is what she has to give right now. while greenberg feels there is value in carefully planned design, she strives to always remain in ambiguous territories and to maintain complexity with purpose and intention. her work questions the perimeters of the in-between. she enjoys using visual metaphors, making characters with static expressions, drawing much of her inspiration from egyptian and japanese art; yuichi yokoyama, specifically for his experiments with consecutive scenes in fragmented time and space. greenberg is curious about alternative realities, gender non-conforming figures, pattern and repetition, hierarchical scale, and indirect allegory.
surface value is 8.5x11", digitally printed on 44 lb matte presentation paper.
