Amanda Burk’s studio practice is situated in drawing. Recently, she has been focusing on a body of work that captures the human subject in a moment away. This moment she has defined as a slip or departure from consciousness – a single instant where the subject loses an awareness of self and surroundings. Burk is fascinated by the very nature of this away moment, when the subject is neither absent nor present but suspended exactly in between the two.
Currently, as an extension and departure from this work, she is exploring a series of drawings about reciprocal gestures and connections between people, as well as ideas surrounding the gesture of release. Burk finds inspiration for her work in her own lived experiences, and while she uses herself as a subject in many of her works, the true subject of the work remains the elusive human experiences she is attempting to make visible.
