Amanda Porche is a New York City based artist, photographer and activist. Having left her childhood home and embarked on 4 years of non-stop travel, she found her home and community in NYC. When COVID-19 struck, she began art as a coping mechanism for the pain and tragedy she saw around her and it quickly formed into a passion.
“My feelings translated better on paper than they ever could in words. It felt as if my art works were an extension of my actual self.”
Amanda uses smears and smudges of paint to create powerful, evocative pieces that touch on themes of social isolation, her own mental deterioration and death.
