Amanda Houchen is a British artist who paints portraits of individuals in burlesque, circus and cabaret settings. Her work is concerned with enactment and the ephemeral nature of the heightened roles people play in these theatrical contexts. There is a fascinating blurring of performer and character in Amanda’s work, often signalled by a tinge of melancholy that comes through the mask of spectacle.
After studying English and Philosophy,…Show more Amanda pursued a degree in Fine Art at the City & Guilds School for Art. She has been shortlisted for a number of awards, including the John Moores Painting Prize.
The artist has exhibited her work across the UK in both solo and group shows.Show less
