Artist Statement
My work encompasses the process of altering messages and interpretations of identity and
distance, given my own experience of migration from the places both in my past and future. I
create paintings, performance and site-specific installation taking into consideration the correlation between information and a nuanced idea of language, identity and landscape patterns that are particularly influenced by the thoughts’
creation and interactions.

About the Artist
Amanda Maciel Antunes was born and raised in the countryside of the state of São Paulo,
Brazil. Since moving to the USA in 2009, Amanda has been developing a self-taught practice in multidisciplinary works including installation, painting, performance, assemblage, costuming and writing.
