Amanda Maciuba's work is concerned with the landscapes, communities, development practices and environmental issues prevalent throughout the United States. By reacting directly to the landscapes and environments she is living in at the time, her work examines, celebrates, and critiques place. Recurrent includes a large print installation that was started in Eastern Kansas after time spent researching remnants of original and re-created prairies and wetlands throughout the region. The work has continued to evolve as a response to the landscapes and communities she currently lives in, most recently, Western Massachusetts and Upstate New York. The work considers how humans influence and attempt to change, destroy and recreate the natural environments around them.
