Amelia Saddingtons paintings combine painterly gesture with photographic imagery. Her work deals with perception and representation of images. Amelia Saddington approaches painting as an expansive format capable of combining a variety of approaches and image types. In her work, plans are introduced in anticipation of inevitable digressions. Images are collaged, framed and reframed into various compositional scenarios, traces of expressive painterly evidence sit adjacent to the artists photographic documents, while subjective/autobiographical symbols interact with other generic visual information. Her work actively engages the losses and gains intrinsic to the precarious act of translating an intended message into visual signs.
