Amanda Bracken

Amanda C Bracken (b. London) lives and works in London. She studied Fine Art at Central Saint Martins ( MA Fine Art 2003), Goldsmiths and Camberwell colleges of Art. Her practice stems from concepts of colour in cultural value systems and colour as a sense perception and she has exhibited drawing, painting, installation, objects and photography in London and nationally. Of her work she says 'I work from objective sources, from found everyday objects: cups, boxes, envelopes, and a lid for example. Emptied of their previous contents, these tangible objects became the subject of subtle illusionistic drawings which in turn offer a starting point for the imaginative and physical possibilities of paint.' Bracken was Selected for the ‘Ida Branson memorial award for MA Exhibition 2004’ at the Atkinson Gallery Somerset in 2004, and has researched and lead many art projects for Gallery education departments, including: Serpentine Gallery, Estorick Collection, Hayward, and Victoria Miro Gallery. Recent Selected exhibitions include: C & C Gallery inaugural group exhibition (2012); Dialogues in America-Latina, Institute of Education London (2012); Creekside Open 2011, selected by Phillida Barlow at APT Gallery Deptford (2011); Parallax Art Fair London (2011) and Drawing Two Hundred, Drawing Room, London (2005).
