Inquire

Amanda Valdez

Born 1982 in Seattle Washington. Lives in New York City.

Amanda Valdez works in a matrix of gestures, styles, and materials referring to visual cultures that are both western and non-western. Valdez pulls on a variety of histories, from quilting and sewing, to tiling and brick-laying, to virtuoso gestural painting. Her works operate as a reflection of the body, and the histories that the body holds in its physical makeup: scars, sags, symmetries and asymmetries, and a lifetime of emotions.

Amanda Valdez received her MFA from Hunter College in New York City and BFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Her most recent solo exhibitions include Hot Bed at Dot Fiftyone Gallery in Miami, Ladies’ Night at the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College, The Mysteries at Koki Arts in Tokyo, Time & Tide with Caris Reid at Denny Gallery, and Thick as Thieves at Denny Gallery. Valdez has received prestigious artist residencies at the Joan Mitchell Foundation, Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts, Byrdcliffe, MacDowell Colony, and Yaddo. She has received grants from the Joan Mitchell Foundation, New York Foundation for the Arts, Hunter College, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and the 2011 College Art Association MFA Professional-Development Fellowship.
