Some deep blues for your Sunday... fresh from the studio is this 'Life Aquatic' 120cm x 100cm, acrylic on canvas... inspired by regular open water swims in Hawaii. www.amandakrantz.studio

Waiting for me back in the Melbourne studio is this fab fan. Yet to be painted on, but check out those folds, and the handsome part-frame at the bottom. Many thanks to woodworker Darren for this creation. I'm looking forward to the next collab.

In the flavour of Australian Summer and melted ice cream, here are the Sundaes; a new series of limited edition prints that are a combination of iPad paintings with the trusty apple pencil and elements of physical paintings and skins. Kinda like a collage of digital and physical painting elements... and a pretty satisfying process of image making. I hope you "lick'em" ;)

Hi all! Fresh from the studio is this piece called 'Aperture' (75cm x 100cm) Acrylic on canvas.
Aperture (meaning the opening where light gets let in) is a reference to the f-stop value in photography, and dates back to well before modern photography to late Middle Ages (has also been used in reference to microscopes and telescopes). The actual etymology of aperture aligns more with the notion of discovery or revelation, which is pretty a cool thought in relation to this cave painting… Aperture could reference both the opening that lets the light in, and the discovery of something secret, like an unexplored cave. https://amandakrantz.studio/originals/portalplyed

Some people have noticed I have a new prints page on amandakrantz.studio, with a new framing service! This is something I'm trialing while I'm abroad. It's through Format, a company in Melbourne. I chose Format to look after this due to their quality of papers and frames, and they use the same printing system that I'm accustomed to, so I have every faith in them.
This does however come at the cost of losing my signature on the actual print paper (though the Certificate is signed and editioned according to best practice). I'm not sure how much the lack of the front signature matters to people? Perhaps having a framing service is more important? I guess time will tell... or you guys will tell me 😉

'Au i ke kai me he manu ala’ is the Hawaiian expression for "Cross the sea like a bird" – to sail across the sea, and is reminiscent of my time spent on the island of Kauai, looking south-west across the pacific towards Australia. https://amandakrantz.studio/originals/kai

Hi Art-loving folks. A quick update to let you know my website has moved to amandakrantz.studio and new email is [email protected]. This is due to the spiders on the web eating my original web-host! All is not lost though since it's a winner of a new address, don't you think? :)

Hi folks. Hope you're all doing okay. Just putting up a couple of new works. I'm happy because already this year I've created nearly as much as I did all of last year! Like most people, I'm not sure what happened to 2021. Anyway, these pieces are the Garden Singapura series, inspired by the fortune of a recent trip to Singapore. I hope you enjoy :)

Hi y'all! Long time no see! I know I seem to have been missing in action, but I have been working on some projects. One of those is this piece for this year's Broken To Brilliant charity bay auction. They're an amazing charity working to help domestic violence victims.

Wisteria

Some of you might know about this whole NFT crypto art craze... well I've started to play around with this fun new tech! Here I've animated my Wisteria Literati painting to have swaying and falling petals. You may have to zoom in some to see it properly. It might be a bit subtle! :D

Here is an animated version of 'Wisteria Literati 2'. A large wisteria bonsai. Artwork by Amanda Krantz, a professional artist in the traditional art world. www.amandakrantz.com. Kranky Studio is her in the digital realm.

Hi Folks - this post is a fellow artist share. It’s something I thought I might do more often as we try and fill the gap left by cancelled art fairs, and who better to start with than the marvellous Casey Freeman () of Melbourne, Australia, and her tranquil fluid ink pieces.

I love how a fellow fluid artist with daoist flow ideas can create works so different to my own. I’m honoured that some of you already own her work along side mine, but if you’re new to her stuff, go give her a follow on insta or on facebook facebook.com/caseyfreemanart, and remember liking, commenting and sharing goes a long way to help that pesky algorithm give artists the love they deserve :)
