“Even nothing cannot last forever.”
Neil Gaiman, American Gods
This recent work explores notions of time, place, memory and transformation. It began with historical photographs from The City of Toronto Archives, sifting through more than a hundred years of life and change in this place. Amanda Nicole White is interested in the shared histories that have accumulated here – within the walls of a hotel or the spot where great ships were built, in a time when our city depended on coal when our lake was dredged to build islands. Some things have endured, others have withered. Some have morphed, once again, into something new. Through traditional printmaking practices and elements of craft, their impressions resonate still.
Amanda Nicole White is a traditional printmaker from Toronto. Her practice is focused on relief printing, exploring personal and collective histories through wood and linocut. She has exhibited both locally and internationally, participating in group exhibitions in England, the United States, Australia and South Korea. Amanda received her BFA from the Ontario College of Art & Design in 2007 and currently prints out of Open Studio.
