Amanda Greive

Biography

Amanda Greive’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.

Amanda 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 Arcadia Contemporary in Los Angeles, Abend Gallery in Denver, Woman Made Gallery in Chicago, Contemporary Art Center of Peoria, and the Rockford Art Museum in Rockford, IL. Most recently, she was a finalist in the 2017 Figurativas exhibit in Barcelona, and was also a finalist in the 12th International ARC Salon, having been awarded an Arcadia Contemporary award. She had solo shows at the Buchanan Center for the Arts, Springfield Art Association, and Quincy Art Center. She was also a juried member of the Chicago Artist’s Coalition’s HATCH project for 2011-12.
