Amanda Edgcombe

Amanda revealed unexpected expressive possibilities and the effects of transparency and opacity in an architectural medium; large-scale hand finished architectural glass.

Amanda’s work replicates an experience of place. Her work is expressive and considered often traversing process’s of reduced, rotated and expanded views.
As a visiting printmaker at Ipswich Art School Amanda has returned to print on several occasions, printing her large aerial etchings in a series and then again recently - prior to lockdown - she was artist in residence at The Printroom, Suffolk.
Her engrained fascination with pattern, it’s cultural impact as remnant historical marks, designed spaces or a reflection of changing environments, urban and rural aerial views, are combined and repeatedly introduced to her work.
