Amanda Manitach


Amanda Manitach’s imagery invokes issues surrounding female psychology, physicality and sexuality. Bold, honest, and at times dark thoughts are shared in text, which melts into a soft feminine pattern sourced from a 1885 French wallpaper sample. Her large-scale drawings address the historical, often-gendered psychology of the decorative arts. The pieces are inevitably smudged, worn and covered with fingerprints where the artist’s wrists, hands, knees and limbs have come into contact with the paper, transforming the “pretty” pattern into a record of her thoughts and physical struggle to create. “I am a self-taught artist and the daughter of a Charismatic Christian minister who grew up in rural Kansas and Texas before moving to Seattle in my early 20's. As a child I spoke in tongues and wanted to be a missionary. I earned a degree literature from Oral Roberts University in 2001, after which the complexities of my faith began taking their toll. I have been a practicing artist living and working in Seattle for the past decade. I am currently represented by Winston Wächter Seattle. I am fascinated by history, art, the politics surrounding the female body, and by art that borders on obsessive, meditative devotion. I sometimes have a dirty sense of humor.”
