About Tony Ameneiro
Tony Ameneiro is an artist-printmaker who uses both drawing and printmaking to develop and extend his ideas and images. His work reveals a sense of condensed observation with references to art history and is executed with great attention to detail. In series such as LOCATION and PARK EDGE, there is often a focus on symbols of place and the layering of culture and geography. The most recent LILY HEAD series continues his interest in the 'Doryanthes excelsa', the Gymea Lily. Exploring the literal and metaphorical possibilities of the botanical term 'flowering head'.
