SNAP is pleased to present work from Amanda McKenzie, SNAP’s 2012 emerging Artist in Residence. This exhibition presents the work created during her residency.

Pattern of Rememory is a series of Photo Lithographic prints that Amanda has created by compiling images from interior photographs, dollhouses and images from the artists own past. Using patterns and repetition she constructs her images with collage, embossment and layering, creating a distorted sense of reality and history.

These techniques reconstruct memories and illustrate how memory is fallible and fictionalized. Fragmented patterns and nostalgic interior scenes are used to be ambiguous and allow the viewer to relate to their own memories and experiences.

The Artist intends to trigger the viewer’s memories and to highlight how memories are idealized and forgotten. With these images she questions the reliability of memory and the importance of the past being remembered correctly.

Opening Reception: June 27, 7-9 pm.

SNAP is happy to provide this programming at no cost to participants.

We hope you will consider making a donation to keep programs accessible in the future.
