The Mankiw Family Gallery is pleased to announce the show Wanderlust comprising of paintings by Philadelphia, PA artist Amanda Jean Rombach taking place Thursday, Nov 6th– Feb 1st, 2015. The opening reception will be Thursday, Nov 6th from 6:00 – 7:00 PM.
Rombach started making art from an early age growing up in Marblehead, MA. She received her Bachelors of Fine Arts in painting from Boston University. After graduating, she relocated to Philadelphia. She has participated in numerous mural projects where she travels across the country to give what she calls “art gifts” to various communities. She is also cofounder of the gallery FJORD, an artist run space which has a revolving group of both in-house and outside curators who work together in an effort to bring a contemporary dialogue about art making to Philadelphia.

The paintings on view reference landscape and photography. They are transcriptions of photographs from the artist's quotidian experience and travels. In slowing down the process of photography, Rombach seeks to highlight the weighty role of acting as a witness and celebrating the phenomena of observation. Her process involves constructing interior and exterior spaces that inform themselves as they develop. Light, form, and color become content. Recurring themes include, rebirth, salvation, and the sublime. Read more about Amanda Jean Rombach: http://ajrombie.tumblr.com
