Born in the United States and raised in Mexico, Amanda Covach’s work draws from issues dealing with race and sexuality, as well as body association and inter-sectional feminism. She attended Florida International University where she received a Bachelor’s of Fine Art in Sculpture. Amanda Covach’s work takes an objective view of the lines and forms of which she currently inhabits. She studies the nuances of shape and points of interaction or reaction, isolates them with direct casts from the body or figurative sculpture, and then further manipulates the collective. The size and shape of the studies warp and shift in accordance to the level of preoccupation at the moment of capture, in order to highlight the strange familiarity she feels with the vessel she is a part of. Refuge to prison, exotic to mundane, the vessel shifts perceptions based on the viewer’s knowledge and intimacy with her.
