Watt 2

Amanda Watt - Gallery Eight

Back to Events


Amanda Watts returns to the UK with her first large-scale solo exhibition since the 1980s with 'Released' at Gallery Eight.

Experience Watt's artwork combining her interiors, landscapes and depictions of the female form to create a bold, bright and brave show. All painted since returning to her native, Northern Ireland after almost thirty years in the USA, the pieces have taken on a new sensitivity and emotional expression.

Her recent work outpours energy and emotion, creating an explosion of colour and form. Watt dives into her personality, experiments with paint and canvas, and trusts her intuition, letting her memory and imagination lead the way. Inspired by her life in California and Florida and her subsequent return to Ireland, 'Release' is an epiphany for Watt, a true outflowing of creativity.

For her still lifes and interior scenes, Watt delves into her memory and imagination to retrieve the images for her paintings. She combines pattern-making with a playful attitude towards perspective to draw viewers into her canvases and infuse inanimate objects with life.
