Painted Hall of Mirrors series by Amanda Clyne

Inspired by fashion and the history of painting, Amanda Clyne’s work examines the image as a mirror of our desires. Amidst today’s cultural fascination with beauty and persona, her paintings critique our digital obsession and question the consequences for human intimacy.

Cropping a mass media image into a portrait, Clyne re-prints the image on to a surface to which the ink does not adhere, photographing the print as the fluid image morphs and dissolves over time. She then composes a new image from fragments of these photographs. She paints these final images into large-scale paintings, the shifting, slivered fragments offering yet denying the viewer resolution of a now elusive form.
