Description

Monster,
Heaven Gallery, Chicago, IL
May 18th – June 24th 2018

Created during her time as Artist-In-Residence at Process Park (Artslant & Chashama), ChaNorth in Upstate New York, this series of cryptic painted works on paper result in abstract reflections on the psychosexual nature of intimacy. As if caught in a moment of an ongoing stage of metamorphosis, Amato attempts to capture the feeling of the imagined orgasm with a man that is not available to her, even though the experience of an intense mutual attraction exists, both physically, emotionally and psychologically.
