Amy Winstanley

“My practice involves painting and writing. I am using the immediacy of paint, the action of painting itself, as a process to take a hold of one’s own perceptions of the world, be it at a conscious and/or subconscious level. I am interested in the continual flux of everything, the potentiality of everything to be something else entirely, that is reflected within painting itself.

I look at humanity’s relationship to ‘nature’ and the enmeshment of all things on multi-scalar levels. I am researching post-human feminist thinking of interconnectedness through water, ways of thinking ecologically, and looking at perspectives of scale through geological ‘deep-time’ and how this all places doubt of what we know of as our bodies within space and time.

Within this I am looking at my own personal experiences of love, loss, of my relationship to the ‘natural world’, and through looking at these existential and spiritual questions in tandem with the mundane, with light-heartedness and a degree of humour”.
