Amanda Gentry

Amanda Gentry (b.1973, Long Beach, California) is a Chicago-based sculptor working in clay. Her work is the result of dedication to form, material, and process, driven by a determination to reveal what is essential at the exclusion of the non-essential. She is a DCASE and IACA grant recipient whose work is in private collections and exhibited in galleries, academic institutions, and museums nationwide. Gentry received a BFA in Design with a minor in Sculpture from Boston University.

My work is a call to go inside. On a larger scale, I do this literally through creating spaces to host the individual in a state of stillness. On a smaller scale, I create forms with surfaces and negative spaces that inspire engagement through one’s sense of touch, inspiring a state of quietude and contemplation
