Amanda Cantin


Amanda’s practice explores the fragility of life and the importance of preserving the family traditions brought by her late grandfather. She dissects and focuses on the animalistic elements of a forest animal usually spotted on hiking trails with her family: the deer, symbolizing gentleness and devotion. She incorporates these elements, along with nautical memorabilia, found within the design inspired by deer hide and antlers within each piece. Devotion is a shrine-like triptych designed to honor or devote itself to the lost or almost fading tradition.
