My art has evolved from its origins in carved forms and public sculpture, to complex installations involving text, ancestral artifacts, alternative photo processes, stone, fabric, and the found object transformed. The installations and assemblages often appear to be meditations on the layered nature of existence. They are sculptural ruminations, which bridge the past and the present.
Amore uses found gloves that are cold cast in bronze to create works which speak to our commonly shared humanity. They are often combined with images of faces on silk, street-made paper and found objects. The gloves are imbued with a sense of history because of the way they have been used, and abused, by time and the street. Each one has its own individual character, but together they create the whole. There is an irony in taking a lost or discarded object and elevating it to a work of art, truly transforming it, while honoring the life that produced it. The focus of Amore’s current work in honoring the reality of our being one human family.
