Amelia McAndrew believes in artistic experimentation through emotional expression and spontaneous gestures. She is not a realist, although most of her works begin with a realistic representation of a landscape. In her creative process, she starts from how the world looks and then explores how unpredictable actions can create something more beautiful. This process often involves destruction and reconstruction, as she uses nontraditional painting tools to introduce depth and texture, or tears a canvas into strips before reassembling the scene anew. She destroys depictions of natural beauty and then puts the puzzle back together to create something more abstract - but more true to the world we live in — nothing is perfect.
