INFORMED BY THE BOOK,the same sky by Amanda Eyre Ward

These artworks are informed by literature about women who have suffered trauma and their hope to survive.They range in size, from very small squares of 5" to diptychs and triptychs,12" x 12" to 15"x4", mixed media on canvas boxes.They place to focus on emotional mark making and color.

"The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak."
Hans Hoffman.
These artworks embrace this attitude.

erase my eyes

the wonderful silence you can hear

the  march sky was rosy at dusk#1

the March sky was rosy at dusk#2

a great cry came from within

floating away

she felt blue and ruined

the sound of broken glass

of being a girl with scars
