Amanda Björk (b. 1992, Kärda, Sweden) is an artist based in Småland and Stockholm. She is working in painting, sculpture, text, and installation. In her artistic practice, Björk considers material production, handicrafts, conventions of painting, and alienation between the human body and the land. 

The alchemical term solve et coagula describes the two stages of the refinement process that materials go through to transform into another form. Oak wood that has been bent by steam and fire. Silk canvas, plant dyed and impregnated in wax. Wet pulp made into sheets of paper reliefs. This work is a result of an idea of what dissolution and coagulation can occur in painting and how it manifests physically.
