Selected online features and interviews
Based in Suffolk, mixed media artist Amy Marie Gladding was born in 1986. Receiving a suitcase full of analogue photography equipment when she was 18 led to her embarking on a journey of experimental photo-arts.
Studying Fine Art (combined media) at Swansea Metropolitan University Amy's work has always crossed borders and spanned art disciplines.
After a time travelling and teaching art abroad Amy settled back in Suffolk and now works as head of photography A Level and teacher of art at a local sixth form.
Current work sees her explore natural surroundings both in her locality and in retrospect. The series "Soul Travel" examines lands visited a lifetime ago through the creation of imagined, sculptural landscapes.
Amy’s world is explored through alternative films, Polaroids and traditional camera-less techniques as well as altering processes such as burying negatives. Amy readily uses collage within her "land art" series and often creates 3D work with her images.
Within these processes Amy can travel and reflect through transient mixed media pieces, accessing any terrain or tundra, valley or plateau.
