About the Artist
Amelia Badenoch (b.1992, UK) is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice explores avenues of past and present family moments and familiar surroundings through bringing her sub and unconscious (dreams and nightmares) to the forefront, together with her cognisant moments. Accompanying her research, she uses sketches in and outside of the studio and varied photographs of childhood and adulthood as references to trigger memories that define her as a person, woman and artist.
About the Artwork
Getting High on a Blue Champagne Sea is a representation of being metaphorically ‘frozen’. I often find myself in this state during the initial phases of falling asleep. Otherwise known as sleep paralysis. The experience itself is quite unpleasant, with my clenched fists and ringing in my ears- however the moments of diving in and out of the darkness gives me almost an outer body experience and it is something I am now consciously aware of and can almost control and bring myself back into my physical state of being.
