Amelia Disspain | Cul-de-sac of Broken Dreams

All is not what it seems in Amelia Disspain’s work…as is the case in suburbia. Who really lives behind that door and in those four walls, what is really behind the facade of the house – and of its occupants?

The palette of these works is light, soft and subtle, at first ‘easy’. However, one soon senses the unease, the colours are just not quite right. Similarly, the form is not quite right, the roof is a bit askew as are the doors and windows.

There is a bit of film noir in Amelia’s work. Her paintings are stills and snap-shots of an environment in which an untold ┬ánarrative lies beneath.

Amelia’s paintings are often small in size and unlike a large canvas, you need to choose to look at, and into, them. Once engaged, it is evident that large universes are contained within.
