About

Amadea Bailey is an American artist whose early life was full of travel and adventure. She was born in Germany and as a child lived in Switzerland, Colorado and Kenya, East Africa. Though the experience of all of these places has touched her, it is Africa which has remained in her spirit and shaped her senses. The wondrous expanses of space, intricate texture, and saturated light which she encountered there continue to fundamentally inform her entire artistic enterprise. While it’s not quite as tidy as portraits with wisdoms for the world -- in fact it’s more like missives for her coming from her own psyche -- still there are choices being made, stories being roughed in, and reactions to the conditions of the world outside the studio. Amadea calls it all “a journey of unraveling,” but by the looks of the canvases, the dynamic is less of a dissolve and more of a cumulative awareness, a world bringing itself into being, and expressing itself with a bold new voice. Fascinated by the sensuality of the paint, she builds up the surface using a variety of techniques. Texture is an important element in each painting. Amadea often uses thin washes of paint built up slowly over time which creates a sense of depth and a distillation of time. Fragments of previous incarnations are embedded in the final image.
