Life and artwork
Amanda Sage completed her schooling at the Shining Mountain Waldorf School in Boulder, Colorado at the age of 18. She then traveled to Vienna, Austria to study the techniques of the Old Masters as taught by Michael Fuchs. In 1999 she was introduced to his father, widely respected painting master Ernst Fuchs and was invited to work with him as his painting apprentice. While studying with Fuchs she worked extensively in the Apocalypse Chapel in Klagenfurt, Austria with Laurence Caruana and A. Andrew Gonzales.
Sage obtained studio space in the historic WUK cultural center, and became integrally involved and an active member of the Board of Directors. In 2007 she joined the stable of artists represented by Galerie 10, placing her in the company of Ernst Fuchs, Arik Brauer, Rudolf Hausner, Anton Lehmden, Wolfgang Hutter, Helmut Kand, Manfred Deix. She is considered one of the leaders of the Visionary Art movement[not in citation given] influenced by the Vienna School of Fantastic Realism.
On her search for a broader audience and resonance for her art, she discovered a thriving scene on the West Coast of The United States at the 725 Spring St. building in Los Angeles, California, where she helped create the Temple of Visions gallery.
She is now based primarily between Vienna, Austria and Los Angeles, California, and spends a substantial amount of her time traveling the world attending, exhibiting, teaching and speaking at gatherings and conferences such as Burning Man, Art Basel Miami and The Nexus Global Youth Summit. She has exhibited in galleries and salons worldwide in places such as London, Japan, Australia, Vienna, Munich, Bali, Moscow and across the USA. She has shown with artists like Alex Grey, Robert Venosa and Romio Shrestha and has contributed to a variety of large scale projects such as the Think Tank at Fractal Nation Burning Man and the Moksha Family Art Gallery at Art Basel Miami.
