Amanda Salov’s work examines the qualities of a moment, or the idea of a moment in physical form: temporal, fragile and fleeting. Currently, the work Salov produces focuses on the central theme of “remains and skeletons revealing the fragility within.” Focusing on the subtle strengths inherent in seemingly delicate compositions, the work is generally comprised of components that collectively contribute to a larger, quietly strong singular presence.
