What does it mean to be a woman, othered? Through an expansive collection of work that often shocks our conventional perception of classical portraiture, and subverting artistic norms within their Westernised contexts – Amanda Ba
submerges us into the world of the unabashed woman. Embodying her own queer, Asian American identity; growing up in both Columbus (United States), and Hefei (China), she utilises literary, theoretical ideas, manifesting them within her visceral paintings of the Asian, female, form – naked, unapologetic and undoubtedly captivating. She provides us with an insight into what it truly means to subvert tradition, and break free from dehumanisation, displayed through a lens of abnormality.
