Amanda Lilleston Exhibits at Albion College

Lilleston9 1

Amanda Lilleston (MFA 2012) exhibits a series of woodblock print collages in a solo exhibition in Munro Gallery at the Bobbitt Visual Arts Center at Albion College. This exhibition happens concurrently with her placement as the Philip C. Curtis Artist in Residence at Albion College. Artist Statement: Both the art world and the world of anatomy have shaped this work. I call my audience back to an awareness of human physicality. Anatomical artists must translate the messy, chaotic human body into streamlined information for students, doctors, and patients. However, the more clean and processed representations of the body become, the more we are separated from the nuances of individuality and unpredictability that resides in each of our bodies. These collages welcome viewers to reimagine the complexity and possibility of structures and relationships that exist within their skins. This series of woodblock print collages investigates what keeps us alive. The fantastical forms in this exhibition are human parts — susceptible to gravity, discomfort, decay, growth and adaptation.”
