Denny Dimin Gallery is pleased to present the work of Amanda Valdez and Future Retrieval at the Dallas Art Fair.
 
Amanda Valdez is a research-based artist who is best known for her mixed-media paintings, which incorporate sewing, embroidery, fabric, oil stick and other paint media. Her works--which begin with the act of drawing--reference landscape, physical experience, art, archaeological objects, and architecture that she encounters in her travel and study. Valdez’s works reflect the histories that the body holds in its physical makeup: scars, sags, asymmetries, wrinkles, and marks. Her work is in significant private and institutional collections such as the Mead Art Museum at Amherst College, Davis Museum at Wellesley College, Time Equities in New York, JoAnn Hickey in New York, and A.G. Rosen in New York.
 
Future Retrieval utilizes three-dimensional scanning and digital manufacturing of found forms that are molded and constructed in porcelain, mimicking the history of decorative arts and design. The duo has developed a practice that mines the past to reimagine historical events and landscapes in ways that evoke the present day. Future Retrieval’s work is held in numerous significant collections such as the Cincinnati Art Museum (Cincinnati, OH), Arizona State University Ceramics Research Center (Tempe, AR), Kansas City Art Institute (Kansas City, MO), 21C Museum/Hotel (Durham, NC), Society of Dresden Porcelain Art (Frietal, Germany), and The Pottery Workshop (Jingdezhen, China), and is the subject of an exhibition at the American Museum of Ceramic Art (Pomona, CA). They are the recipients of prestigious awards and residencies such as the Smithsonian Artist Research Fellowship and Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts Residency.
