On June 3rd, JR Gallery in Berlin opened Make Believe and Receiver, a joint show from two artists and partners in crime, Amanda Marie and Hyland Mather (AKA X-O). Exhibiting next to each other, Marie will be showing her hypnotic illustrative stenciled imagery next to Hyland’s geometric bricolage assemblages made from found materials. Though very different in their styles, the works of the two American artists living in Amsterdam complement each other due to their folk art influence and the color palette used. With pastel and earth tones, both bodies of work feel aged or vintage, yet fresh and dreamy.
