Amanda Shadforth is an accomplished fine artist who specialises in paint and sculpture. Working in the medium of oil on canvas and mixed-media sculpture, she creates still-life studies of the commonplace told through her distinct lens. Inspired by nature and found objects, Shadforth plays with the notion of purpose and repurpose to paint tableaux in striking photorealism and creates sculptures that challenge tangible perception.Shadforth’s abstract realist works merge the Dutch Masters’ skilful documentation with the playfulness of the Surrealists, and echo the Bauhaus movement’s simple precision. Subconscious arrangements that offer objectivity and establish harmony without human intervention. Shadforth strips objects of their original function and assigns a new raison d’être in her intimate examinations of the everyday.For a decade, Shadforth refined her curatorial eye documenting the world of fashion, both as a creative director and photographer. She achieved international success with her visual narrative works for luxury brands including, Chanel, Dior and Louis Vuitton. Shadforth offered an outsider's perspective to the fashion establishment, a sentiment and aesthetic she continues to convey through her artworks.Shadforth’s return to painting and sculpture signifies the resumption of a career in the fine arts, which has been met with acclaim. In 2020, she exhibited at Sydney’s prestigious Jerico Contemporary, and in 2021 received the Sunshine Coast Art Prize People’s Choice Award for her artwork, Between a Rock and A Hard Place II.
