Amanda Church is an artist living and working in New York City and a recipient of a 2015 Guggenheim Fellowship for Fine Art as well as the Pollock-Krasner and NYFA grants in 2017. Her paintings’ overarching Pop ethos has consistently referenced the body in landscape, and has at times veered toward figuration, with recognizable body parts populating what remains an essentially abstract arena. Most recently, her work has swerved back toward abstraction with occasional figural intimations. Amanda’s most recent solo exhibition was at High Noon Gallery in NYC in the fall of 2019.
