Amanda MacIuba

Amanda Maciuba’s work is concerned with how the effects of purposeful human actions, alongside uncontrollable factors of time and nature, alter both the current landscape and human agency within that landscape. “In my work, I use printmaking, book arts, installation and drawing to question the sustainability of our current decisions and actions within the cycles of development and destruction upon the landscape. As I create the work I question how the land we live on has become what it is today and consider my own impact upon the landscape. Ultimately, I call attention to the unique and irrational characteristics of locations, both the natural beauty and the absurdities that we create in the landscapes of our everyday.”
