Traces Through The Landscape

A solo exhibition by Amanda Oliphant

‘Traces Through The Landscape’ is a solo exhibition by Amanda Oliphant, featuring a new body of work exploring the emotions and ideas the landscape can conjure when walking through it.

Amanda Oliphant graduated with a BA (Hons) degree in Fine Art at LJMU followed by an MA in Art as Environment at MMU. As an Interdisciplinary Artist, working nationally and internationally, her interests lie within the changing landscape of Art and Ecologies. This new series of work continues her interest in creating artistic interventions that aim to engage the public, discovering hidden layers with shared experiences within art.

The artist says: “The feeling of my footsteps upon a broken path, obstacles I go around, breath-taking vistas that stop me in my tracks, taking my breath away. The noise of crows calling or the beauty of a songbird singing, hidden layers of colour and light, the force of the wind and rain upon my face, and the reassuring warmth of the sun gifting me a feeling of content. All elements that seep into my own consciousness and that remain when I’m back in my studio transferring these experiences through paint – they are a journey of life, they are ‘traces through the landscape’.”


“Painting both outdoors and then back in the studio helps to build a painterly story, expressing many layers that sometimes I have to walk away from, find time to reflect, and then return. They are a reconnection to place, an interpretation of the natural world”. – Amanda Oliphant

“The Waterloo Series” and other paintings.

This exhibition shows a selection of paintings mainly from “The Waterloo Series”, celebrating landscape in all its forms; suburban, urban, coastal and otherwise. The series was produced from sketches taken around a specific coastal area of sand dunes and lakes in Waterloo, near to the artist’s home in North Liverpool.

2019 was a year of significant change in the artist’s life, and then 2020 brought change on a worldwide scale to each and every one of us. It was at that time the artist stopped painting for a while, but after a period of not painting, the urge for Nathan was then to look for something new, a new portfolio with a different approach.

The way forward was a return to a more traditional way of working; going for a walk, making a sketch, taking a photograph for reference then going back and producing paintings from what was seen on the walk, using the photographs and sketches alongside the memory as a visual reference. It was a way of getting down to the bare bones of making art. It also produced more figurative paintings than had been done by him in many years. The paintings were almost all painted simultaneously, but the walks continued to inform afterwards nonetheless.

In the years leading up to “The Waterloo Series” in 2020, the subject landscape had begun to leak more and more into the artist’s works. The additional paintings on show are connected to Liverpool and Merseyside in some way, shape or form and although less representative, and perhaps of no particular place, still have glimpses which informed the other paintings and in some ways helped the Waterloo paintings come to fruition.
