Amanda Lechner Studio Visit Synopsis and Discussion Links.
During Amanda Lechner’s studio visit on July 22nd 2009 the group discussed her recent body of work, a two wall installation of drawings. Lechner’s mixed media assemblage of drawings (comprised of graphite, goauche, acrylic paint, and ink) fused a vocabulary of figuration, abstraction, text, and geological land formation references.
The group discussion focused on Lechner’s use of the corporeal form and the integration of abstraction in her work.
The discussion also included the different functions of text in visual art and how the text relates to the narrative and formal composition of Lechner’s work.
