Learn more about the Poetics of Place artists and their work, and how the thematic of the exhibition – our responses to space and place – is reflected in their practices.

Amanda Ralph is an installation artist whose practice is concerns with finding ‘ready-made art’ within the everyday landscape. Her meticulously arranged assemblages suggest new readings of familiar objects, offering a respectful nod to the past, yet grounding the viewer in the present moment.

Amanda Ralph graduated from Coventry Polytechnic with BA(Hons) in Fine Art in 1991 and exhibited widely across the UK and internationally. 20 years later, after taking a career break to raise her family, Ralph is currently studying her final year of MA Fine Art at the University of Hertfordshire.
