Artist Statement:
Amy draws from the visual vocabulary of sea and shore, of fishing and navigating¬. Her first exposure to fiber work as a child was her father knitting heads for lobster traps.
Amy’s work examines the melancholic romance of the ocean and man’s relationship with it as a method of reconciling existential questions and exploring spirituality. The vastness and the power of the ocean is essentially beyond human’s scope of control. Yet it presents us with elements crucial to life, with sustenance, even the origins of all living organisms.
