My work employs both photography and painting in the production of a distinct body of work. The resulting images exhibit characteristics of photography as an expression and poetic medium - a recording device of the "real" - while at the same time addressing painting as a dimension to express and record the emotional states and memories of the inner (subconscious) world. The images of my art production are not literal or linear in structure, but are constructed from fragmented and repetitive pieces, and represent a narrative of time, place, and memory.

Work by OCAD U alumna Amanda Nedham
Opening Reception: Friday, November 7, 6 to 9 p.m.
Primarily concerned with the various taxonomic functions of history, Nedham’s works on paper exhibit a technical proficiency and enamoured exploration of natural history’s complex and overlapping structures. Through a process of abstraction based on the collaging of drawings, largely from television and internet sources, she attempts to focus on those moments that create tension as they challenge the governing voice of history. Nedham is the winner of the Ontario College of Art and Design’s Printmaking Medal. Her work has been ehibited in Toronto, Florence, and New York.
