Artist Statement

Visit my website www.amandavangils.com or follow me on Facebook for regular interactive updates http://www.facebook.com/AmandavanGilsArtist Statement: My work aims to engage with the longstanding tradition of Australian landscape painting yet offer a contemporary take on the genre. Through my work I aim to explore our dynamic psychological relationship to the world around us. In the past I have explored the idea of people’s place in the environment through various permutations, primarily: the absence of people, people disconnected from the landscape, and moments observing others (most often children) at imaginative play creating their own space. In doing this, I have experimented with juxtaposing elements in unexpected settings to invert traditional notions of perspective and perception. The landscapes in my works are not grand landscapes, they are small and familiar; these places are part of our everyday lives and they inform our understanding of the world. My paintings share their quietness, yet I draw on the unpredictable and the anomalous to explore how we respond to them. My current body of work View from a Speeding Train, moves the figure off stage; the viewers are given the view of the landscape yet are drawn to the narrative of the viewer within the painting (the unseen person looking out the window). This interplay between movement and stillness, outside and inside, encourages the observer to make choices in their reading of the paintings that ultimately link to their own specific relationship to place. ...
