I decided to change my website, which presented finished works, into a blog. I seemed to spend my time exploring and doing rather than being involved in specific projects over the last 2-3 years. I am keeping myself busy, however the website didn’t seem to reflect that. Hopefully this will enable me to show work I am working on and photography projects I am currently undertaking – no matter how big or small or unfinished. Having a 9-5 job takes it’s toll on creativity and it is my intention to work hard to produce some more projects in my own time. I am also working with theatre productions alongside some other projects yet to be named here. It would be great to hear from other creatives.
Here’s what my bio on my original website said.
Amy Connolly is an artist from Liverpool, now living in London. She specializes in painting, installation, set design and concept design. Her art work looks at the human condition, focusing on lives past and present. Working with old photographs, film footage and displaying often grim realities.
She is also a talented photographer specializing in street, architectural and portrait photography. Her photographs often portray the darker and often comic side of British life.
After gaining her MA Fine Art from UCLAN she has worked as a photographer, assisted in the production and running of an exhibition at the Liverpool Biennial, as an arts assistant for a bespoke art company and most recently within the art department at Future Cinema. She currently works as an Academic Coordinator with an international education organisation and as a teaching assistant on the theatre course.
