Fragility of Self

Fragility of Self – The Art of Amy Oliver

“I am a conceptual artist and draw upon my own experiences of mental health, women’s rights and identity, and social and political conditions as the catalyst for my work.”

Defaced – A Predictable Slip

 

“I use mannequins, my own sculptures and digital manipulation to construct photo art – my intention being to create subtle images in which the subject matter is almost secondary and conversely more intense; to express vulnerability and instability but also allude to the fundamental core strength within – in an attempt to capture the fragility of self. I enjoy taking an experimental approach with both materials and reference, responding in unconventional ways and pushing their (and my) boundaries; and unearthing discarded, lost and forgotten items and using them to construct something else entirely, bringing a new dimension to their existence.”
