Amy Ayanda is an abstract artist based in Cape Town, South Africa and a graduate of the Michaelis School of Fine Arts. She has travelled extensively to Europe, extending her artistic practice through workshops and short courses. Her work for SYMBIOSIS comprises of a collection of Acrylic and Oil paintings.
Her paintings are a combination of orderly and chaotic, balancing between calming spacious canvas’ and jam-packed oil impasto colours; adorned with glitter and beads. The artist addresses ideas of learning to live alongside others, listening to their stories and understand their forms with the sensitivity and care that one takes with themselves and their own sto- ries. In turn, she grapples with notions of being human and the complexities that exist therein.
