"My subjects are in constant movement, they dance between the ephemeral and eternal, the material and ethereal, the real and unreal."
Amanda Linares is a Cuban-born visual artist who currently lives and works in Miami. She graduated in printmaking from San Alejandro Academy of Fine Arts in Havana, Cuba followed by receiving her BFA in Graphic Design from New World School of the Arts. She is currently a resident artist at the Bakehouse Art Complex.
Her work uses a variety of media from design and illustration to installation and photography. Influenced by literature and spatial awareness, Linares’s practice embodies poetic language while exploring narration and space through the use of reflection, transparency, revelation, found objects, and typographical solutions. Evolving as a young artist, her work intimately dances between many universal issues, such as identity, displacement, absence, and reconnection.
