The 'medium is the message' is a statement that has always fascinated Amanda Bromfield. Amanda believes that art can tell a story and, get a message across to an audience. Amanda uses clay and performance as her medium. Her message is about women. The dress is a reoccuring motif in her work, the dress or costume has become Amanda's metaphore for identity.
Amanda has a love of both; social history and art history. Historical reference is an important element of her work, she believes art history gives context and that the past can interact with and explain the present.
As an installation artist, Amanda enjoys hand making multiples, she carefully sculpts clay, to create individual patterns and highly decorative detail.
Amanda makes her own glazes to create unique surface textures. She loves to juxtapose, colour, texture and content to create contrast in her work, her works provoke thought and arguement. She will create a body of work specifically to get her message out to an audience.
