Amanda Rackowe Artist Bio:
I have been painting and drawing for as long as I can remember. It was what I always wanted to do for the rest of my life; it is still what I want to do for the rest of my life. Colour and light attract my attention everyday. I love contrasts, diffused light, natural light juxtaposed with artificial, reflections. My work often shows a scene where the onlooker is present but not involved, as if something has just been missed, or is about to happen. Or if their presence is there at all, it is in isolation, insignificant, disconnected. Large skies or strong lighting conditions often echo the feeling of 'small fish in a big pond'. After studying theatre lighting design and working in this field for several years I moved into the field of architectural lighting. But painting remained my first love and was ever present in my life. If I don't paint for a while I get withdrawal symptoms. Not painting is not really an option!
