Amanda Knowles

Seattle, WA
November 1, 2004 – January 15, 2005

Printmaker Amanda Knowles creates a visual language that interprets how languages are processed, and she pieces together shapes abstracted from scientific data in order to convey her personal responses to science. In commenting on her approach, the Seattle artist says: “My work investigates scientific information in the artistic realm, subordinating linear thought and the knowledge base from which the information originates to create an aesthetic interpretation of the moments leading to understanding.” To this end, Knowles creates visual structures with which to further this investigation, juxtaposing photographic images with diagrams to combine the actual with the conceptual. The artist received her BA from the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia and an MA and MFA from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
