Spotlight On: Amelie Mancini

"My paintings are mental reconstructions of a world first felt then remembered."

I'm crazy about Amelie Mancini's paintings featuring baseball's greatest legends. I love the blocks of color, the repeating patterns and shapes, the broken down canvas into 6 separate parts. But what I really love is how she allows these otherwise overly recognizable faces a fantasy-like space to exist in. These are not your household, beaten up, used on the spokes of your bicycle, baseball trading cards. These are works of art.
