About Amelia Lancaster
The rigour of my Architectural and Set Design background has informed my work. I am interested in transforming architecture through spatial abstraction. Contrast and colours are manipulated to accentuate the shapes and structure and sometimes create ambiguous spaces. In my 'Beautiful Brutalism' series I was drawn to austere and unpeopled locations to create these concrete compositions. Negative space is also explored to see configuration beyond the human eye.
