I like to work in a direct, fast way with materials which I acquire as cheaply as possible or for free. This means that I use some recycled/re-purposed manufacturing material, packing material, junk mail, thrift shop materials and some things that are great for art making but weren't made to be used that way. I don't feel inspired by expensive, exclusive art materials and I'd rather explore every curious experiment in art making with stuff that comes cheap, free and with some serendipity. This way I feel like I'm collaborating with the flow of materials in the world around me. The non-preciousness of the materials allows my playfulness to stretch itself out and my subconscious to come out of it's hidden mind-cave.
I'm on Instagram - @amandapetrovato.art and my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are interested in buying something I've made, I do have an Etsy shop called "AmandaPetrovatoArt" If there's something else you have seen that isn't in the Etsy shop, please contact me about it via email.
