Artist Statement

Artist: Amanda Klimek; Photographer: Paul Glenn


Deeply influenced by Op Art, my work invites viewers to engage on an individual level with the idea of spirituality. Inspired by various religious symbols, objects and decorative patterns, I create paintings, works on paper and installations that speak to awareness and ritual. My studio practice is a daily ritual executed at times with strategic mathematical precision and other times with a truly submissive response to the moment. The duality of my process explores the concepts of structure and chaos that drive accessibility to a spiritual or meditative experience.
