Amanda Houchen

Amanda Houchen is a contemporary painter based in London, who recently graduated from City & Guilds School for Art with a Masters in Fine Art. Influenced in particular by German Expressionism, Amanda seeks to create gestural and emotive paintings and is drawn to explore mysterious, claustrophobic spaces, with strong tones of light and dark. She is interested in artifice and constructed, temporary settings that are inhabited by fictional characters or performers who have an ephemeral quality. Amanda has recently exhibited at The Affordable Art Fair and was shortlisted for Bloomberg New Contemporaries.
