AMANDA GREIVE

Amanda Greive graduated with a bachelor’s degree in visual arts from

the University of Illinois at Springfield in 2008 and has exhibited her

work both locally and nationally. She has exhibited her work at the St.

Louis Artist’s Guild, Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, Contemporary Art

Center of Peoria, and the Louisville, KY, Visual Arts Association. Most

recently, she was a finalist in the 12th International ARC Salon and was

awarded an Arcadia Contemporary award. She had solo shows at the

Buchanan Center for the Arts, Springfield Art Association, and Quincy

Art Center, and has an upcoming solo exhibition at Olivet Nazarene

University’s Victorian Home Art Gallery in Bourbonnais, Illinois, as

well as an upcoming group exhibit at Arcadia Contemporary in Culver

City, California. She was also a juried member of the Chicago Artist’s

Coalition’s HATCH project for 2011-12.

Amanda’s hyper-realistic compositions reference both classical

and contemporary symbolism and iconography. While the primary

motivation behind her work is to tease out the nuanced emotions

embedded within the human condition and to confront isolation and

anxiety born of gender-based stereotypes, she also looks to comment

on the contradiction between creating realistic imagery and portraying

emotional rawness, as well as the uncompromised truth in the imagery

portrayed versus it’s symbolic ambiguity.
