Scribbles + Glitter Beginnings | Amanda McCavour

Toronto-based artist, Amanda McCavour, creates incredibly detailed and tonal drawings by sewing onto a dissolvable fabric, leaving the threads vulnerable and left to hang for themselves, and effectively subtly distorting the imagery in her works. 

Recreating more literal representations of the objects within McCavour's surrounds include Living Room and StandIn for Home whilst more organic and repetitive shapes can be found in installations Icebox and Scribble.

Amanda McCavour graduated from York University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Visual Arts. She has participated in a number of solo and group exhibitions in Toronto, and is currently an artist in residence in the Harboufront Centre's Studio.
