Comment
彼女は身の回りにあるものをモチーフにして、アイデンティティを探る試みをしています。近年では彼女の身近にあったレースを、版画やデジタル、ドローイングで重層的に描いています。色や線や空間が呼応しあい、モチーフの育んできた時間、家庭の歴史の積み重ねを観る者へ直覚的に伝えています。

Using ordinary personal belongings as motifs, Amy Sands explores her identity. In recent years she has been depicting the layering of laces through the mediums of printmaking, digital methods, and drawing. Nostalgic home is depicted with colours, lines, and spaces that interact with each other to touch the viewers’ heart.
