About artist Amy Lord
I make original multi-textured and layered encounters, experiences and spaces that are normally interactive in some shape or form; mixing installation, media forms and craft.
I’d describe my work as exploring what connects us as human beings and having fun blurring the lines between reality and art. I call myself a multi-disciplinary artist as I use a lot of different materials, tools, forms and techniques in my work. I’m effectively a big old magpie...
I love the therapeutic power of craft and transforming environments to make them more joyful.
I’ve made work for over a decade, which has flexed and grown with me as my interests and ways of working have changed, which you could say has resulted in a fairly eclectic archive of work (collected here on this site, click on Projects at the top to have a browse).
I’ve presented work at SPILL National Review of Live Art, BAC, Forest Fringe, Deptford X, The Late Shows Newcastle, The Basement Brighton, Camden People’s Theatre, RichMix, The Bluecoat, Barbican Plymouth, Shoreditch Town Hall, Queen’s Hall Hexham, Whitstable Biennale Satellite and on the streets of Manhattan via Art in Odd Places.
As well as delivering my own projects, I have been commissioned by a wide range of partners including NewcastleGateshead Initiative, Juice festival, bait and The Empty Space.
