About

This piece, "Tick-Tock", by Amanda Gentry, transforms the ordinary view of ceramics feeling concrete and blocked into a seemingly diaphanous, light quality. The white color creates an unprecedented softness to the curves of the piece. Gentry, then, creates an illusion: against a white wall, "Tick-Tock" feels like momentous piece of work, but Gentry utilizes her design background to create an impact of negative space and opens the piece up to its surroundings completely. Amanda Gentry’s work is the merger of a technical and emotional ceramicist. Infusing each work with impeccable craft to underlie the specificity of each form, Gentry creates sculptures filled with care and intimacy. Assembled from flat pieces, then smoothed through sanding, she forms curved bases that gently sway with a subdued playfulness. These inflated shapes are both strong and pillowy, a reminder that softness can be strength as well. Amanda Gentry (b.1973, Long Beach, California) is a Chicago-based sculptor working in clay. Her work is the result of dedication to form, material, and process, driven by a determination to reveal what is essential at the exclusion of the non-essential. She is a DCASE grant recipient and exhibits work nationwide, recently exhibiting at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts (San Angelo, Texas). Gentry received a BFA in Design with a minor in Sculpture from Boston University.
