Amelia Coward is a Kent based artist best known for her explorations into mixing, blending and grading colours.
Amelia regularly exhibits internationally, and has appeared in The Other Art Fair, curated by Saatchi Art, in London over the last few years.
Born in 1975, she holds a 1st class honours from Central St Martins and MA from the Royal College of Art.
Having received training based upon the colour theory teachings of Josef Albers, Amelia creates artworks that focus on the interaction of colours. Her works are carefully composed studies of spacial balance between geometric coloured elements such as circles and stripes. Influenced heavily by her woven textile training she uses laser cutters much the same way as she was trained to use a loom, cutting geometric shapes then reassembling them in patchwork compositions. Her works move dramatically from highly detailed dot pieces containing sometimes 1000’s of raised hand-painted dots to large scale striped pieces comprised of contrasting scales and bold clashing colours.
Located in a traditional Oast Barn in the Kent countryside, Amelia combines her prolific making of new pieces with her commercial giftware business, Bombus. Each influences the other. Amelia has a team of creative makers in her studio to help to assemble, photograph, frame and pack her artworks.
