It goes without saying that the Circus Posterus collective have some of the most dedicated, die-hard, and enthusiastic fans and collectors out there, and from time to time, we like to showcase their hard work and loyalty. For Chris Ryniak and Amanda Louise Spayd’s exhibit Migration, we are going to do something a tad different.
For this installment, and to get us all even more amped up for the show next week, we will bring you numerous works by the beautiful and talented Amanda Louise Spayd. Sit back and take a gander at some of these cherished critter collections made by our beloved seamstress!
The image above from Eric Martin’s collection features Bailey(polka dotted beauty), spotty little Cocoa, and two editioned works – Little Medic and a Belladonna:Antoinette.
Rhiannon probably has one of the most comprehensive ALS collections out there – our favourite is the gorgeous(and very tall) Duchess from Amanda’s show at Rivet Gallery last year. Rhiannon also has almost all of Mandi’s editioned works so far – in the lower left boxes we see Deadnettle, Foxglove, Little Medic, Belladonna:Antoinette and the classic Belladonna. And of course, the Black Rabbit (of Inlé) is one of Amanda’s most memorable large works, and it couldn’t have found a better home.
Jason Spanier’s collection, and a wonderful assortment of colour coordinated bunnies(and a lamb). Amanda’s screenprint for Monsters and Misfits II is still available in the store!
