Amane T. Aoyama is a visual artist based in Florence. She graduated in 2022 in Multimedia Arts at Istituto Marangoni Firenze.
As she explains, “Art is a way of comprehension. Born neurodivergent, I am only capable to comprehend my environment through a logical statement. Art is an aid for me to be at peace with topics that seemingly have no definitive answer. Trying to understand the world in a factual way reveals an alternative realm of ‘truths’ beneath the surface.
My works reflect this, as I intend to provoke the thoughts and questionings towards philosophical concepts such as ‘identity’, ‘existence’, and ‘connection/intimacy’ for my audience. I apply a very metaphorical approach that encourages multiple re-watchings or long observations to achieve my aims. Neurodiversity often causes a struggle to communicate with the general public, my works are an open invitation for the world to interact with me at my own pace.”
