24 March - 10 April
Campbell Works is delighted to present a survey of work by Amanda Welch. Amanda’s practice began in the early 60’s as a painter until one day in 2006 the act of painting became impossible. “One minute I was in full swing working vigorously the next dust and ashes”. A vacuous facility threatened. She rejected her beloved practice and laid down her brushes. Alarmed and bereft Welch changed tack and slowly developed new ways of making work away from the ‘frame’, on the floor with various ‘non art’ materials relishing their awkwardness, and the freedom they allowed.
