Amanda Burnham
American, born 1979

Putting an urban spin on plein air painting, a method of working outdoors favored by the Impressionists, Amanda Burnham immerses herself in her urban surroundings to create her evocative drawings and installations of cityscapes. A self-described “ardent admirer of street signs,” Burnham recomposes fragments of the city— text taken from street signs, a chain link fence, portions of a brick wall, a vacant lot, roofs of row houses—into impressionistic scenes that effectively capture the visual jumble and poetic energy of cities.
