Sirona Fine Art

Within Lauren Amalia Redding's art practice, she draws upon two primary influences: her mother’s Cuban family and their cultural and personal legacies, and the meticulous draftsmanship that constitutes her technical fulcrum. Amalia Redding primarily works in the anachronistic medium of silverpoint, drawing with a piece of silver or gold in a stylus to create delicate works that require focus, have no room for error, and possess a tangible yet fleeting quality evocative of memory and narrative. Line and shadow are woven so that, from their neat labyrinth, the sentiment and psyche of her subject emerges more truthfully. Amalia Redding wants to ensure that the faces of her Cuban family are recorded so that their history can be remembered: though despondent, they emerged victorious, and she wishes to pay homage to their journey and inherent beauty.
