Amanda Richards: "Uncorrected Proof". By Aleksandar Ares, photos by K.K.W

At the event "Artbeat: SAS", I noticed something interesting, full of life and worth thinking about beyond the event itself. 

Its true; sooner or later all things are broken, shattered, left in fragments and often better left unsaid.
"Uncorrected Proof"
In Amanda Richard's piece "uncorrected proof" [2014 - resin, windshield glass] the force of pain and trauma serge's through it, the power of a life lived. Each line a wrinkle, a place we've been an will never be again, the places of impact could moments of joy that left its mark, or tragedy that we can never let go. 
"Uncorrected Proof"
The name of her piece leaves as much unanswered, as its gives; what is uncorrected? The material which no longer serves its function? The embodiment of a broken human form? Does her work give proof of what we all suspect and fear; that even alive, we're already shattered and broken?
"Uncorrected Proof"
The beauty is through the harshness of what it emanates, the pale-color, the lines from the impact its sustained, which created its current state. Its tortured soul given a state of grace by hands that loved it for what it is. And what it could be.
"Uncorrected Proof"
If you would like to know more, you will have to wait until we can locate Miss Richard's website. "Art is the reason, art is the way"
