Amanda Horvath

Coming this September

We are delighted to be showing Amanda Horvath’s vibrant tree paintings for the first time in the gallery in our September show. She will be working on more new pieces, which will be shown here as soon as they are finished.

Amanda Horvath is a contemporary artist producing vibrant colourful and highly textured original paintings. After achieving a B A Hons (1st class) in fine art at Sheffield Hallam University, Amanda subsequently lectured in colleges. She now practices full time as an artist from her studio in Derbyshire.

“ My paintings are about peaceful places and quiet healing woodlands. I attempt to create uplifting work bringing a feeling of optimism and freshness, capturing the spirit of these tranquil places. Inspired by ethereal light and dramatic contrasting shadows, I have a passion for expressing nature in beautiful colours, whilst imparting a feeling of calm. This affinity with nature has grown from early childhood and my past experiences.”

Working from observation of nature Amanda often begins a canvas en plein air, finishing in her studio. Harnessing optical mixing techniques employed by the impressionists and using a mixture of impasto, scumbling and glazing, she works expressively in acrylics or oils. With a palette knife or other mark making techniques she applies layer upon layer until the painting reaches a natural conclusion, forming contemporary paintings that lie somewhere between abstraction and realism. Her paintings have found homes with private collectors worldwide.
