Corners of Mind, 2023
Found glove archivally preserved,
streetmade paper, acrylic, text, wood
14" x 14" x 2"


In the corners where you forget to look
What can be revealed in the mind or in the world
Are you willing to take a chance
Not knowing what might be revealed

Amore uses found gloves that are cold cast in bronze to create works which speak to our commonly shared humanity. They are often combined with images of faces on silk, street-made paper and found objects. The gloves are imbued with a sense of history because of the way they have been used, and abused, by time and the street. Each one has its own individual character, but together they create the whole. There is an irony in taking a lost or discarded object and elevating it to a work of art, truly transforming it, while honoring the life that produced it. The focus of Amore’s current work in honoring the reality of our being one human family.
