Amanda Dow Thompson’s new work explores the relationship between reality and illusion and the very nature of identity in today’s fast-paced world. Solid sculptures hung close to the wall, create temporary, translucent marks, when lit. There is a sense of metamorphosis as pieces, still, spare and unadorned at first sight, begin to awaken in layer and color upon closer inspection. With obsessive repetition, and as the lines between positive and negative blur, the sculptures, more air than matter, create a world where the hidden is more vivid than the overt and where individuality battles conformity. Above all, the work asks the viewer to consider whether the beguiling can have as much resonance as the truth.
