Currents and FLUX: Amanda Salm



Amanda Salm, b. 1961
Pacific Grove, CA

Artist statement:

Our environment affects us, whether in a densely populated, bright, noisy city or at a remote lake surrounded by trees and mountains. Our physiology responds accordingly and certain neural pathways are activated. Akin to the web of channels that determine vascular systems, networks of roads, freeways and trails give us access through the topography of the land, offering ease and efficiency of transit. It is this terrain of interconnected lines and features I am looking to in navigating my path forward and discovering the patterns and rhythms of the tactile landscapes I am creating.



Currents and FLUX are two new Monterey Museum of Art exhibition spaces dedicated to recognizing the work of emerging and evolving California artists.

Currents exhibits a range of media, styles and genres, displaying selected artwork of one artist per exhibition.  FLUX showcases smaller three-dimensional works of unique crafting and design.

Both of these engaging platforms serve the MMA’s mission of connecting people and art by providing a space for California artists to share their talents, cultures, and perspectives.

The new exhibits also enrich visitors’ experiences by inspiring involvement in the arts and providing fresh ideas and new trends in contemporary art.
