- Amanda Greive
Amanda’s hyper-realistic compositions reference both classical and contemporary symbolism and iconography.
Her most recent work includes paintings of women in a variety of positions with flowers coming out of their backs, balancing on their foreheads, or covering their faces. She aims to address the emotional and societal pressure to conform to a certain ideal that women face, as well as her interest in the symbolic duality of flowers as fragile, beautiful and sexual but also strong, persistent and adaptable.
Amanda has exhibited her work at SCOPE NY 2018, RJD Gallery in Bridgehampton, NY, Arcadia Contemporary in Los Angeles, Abend Gallery in Denver, Rehs Contemporary Gallery in New York City, and the Rockford Art Museum in Rockford, IL. Most recently, she has exhibited work at the Wausau Museum of Art in Wausau, WI, Copro Gallery, Santa Monica,CA, and the LA Art Show with Rehs Contemporary Gallery. She was a finalist in the 2017 FIgurativas exhibit in Barcelona and a Rehs Contemporary Award winner in the 13th ARC International Salon. She is represented by 33 Contemporary Gallery in Chicago, IL.
Her studio is located in Central Illinois.
