ARTISTS RESIDENCY PROGRAM 

Amanda Buonocore

Artist Statement:
 
I deal with connections between the abstract and the real in my work. I
use these connections to create rational systems by which to alter objects,
space, and time. These alterations allow me to materialize abstract
concepts in physical space and realize concisely the latent potential of my
media.
 
The Rules:
1. observation prior to action
2. construction through deconstruction
3. repetition leads to change
4. always clean up
 
 
Amanda Buonocore received her Masters of Fine Arts from Cranbrook Academy of Art,
located in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan, and her Bachelors of Fine Arts from Long Island
University: C.W. Post. Through her work, she explores the potential of raw materials in
a process of deconstruction and reconstruction, focusing on the differing results of
repetitious actions. She has exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, The
Governor’s Island Art Fair, The Tilles Center for the Performing Arts, among other
places. Her work is currently on display at Daimler Financial Services in Farmington
Hills, Michigan, as part of a small chosen group of long-term loans. In 2008, she was
awarded the printmaking award of excellence from Long Island University for
experimental and extensive detailed print work.
