Born in New Jersey, 1986, Amanda O’Keefe is an artist currently living and working in the Northeast US.
Her interest in creation stems from the idea of art as a tactile communication that elicits psychological and perceptual discoveries. The diverse processes of her work involve a metamorphosis of material, structure, and imagery; exploring aspects of tension that lie between beauty, fragility, aggression.
In papermaking she found a meditative form of experimentation that deals with the decomposition and reformulation of organic matter. This interest complements her printed and drawn imagery: usually abstracted or fractured; inspired by biological, mechanical, and personal matters of subject. She integrates three-dimensional forms into some of her works, structures with which various stretched materials develop symbiotic relationships. She continues to explore manners of constructed material evolutionism, and the influence that layers, translucency, and form have upon a given environment.
