Amanda Church is an artist living and working in New York City. Her paintings’ overarching Pop ethos has consistently referenced the body in landscape, and of late has veered toward a synthesis of abstraction and figuration, often with quasi-recognizable, usually distorted body parts populating what remains an essentially abstract arena. She is a recent recipient of several grants, including a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2015 and both a NYFA and a Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant in 2017.
