AMY GREEN – Recent Paintings
April 7, 2017 - May 14, 2017
In Amy Green’s heavily textured paintings, the artist creates abstractions using ready-made felt, urethane and industrial pigments. The surfaces are built up slowly as enamel drenched materials accumulate. Experimentation and impulse are at the center of her studio practice. Multiple layers are recycled over time, covered over, cut and resorted. The result is highly abstract imagery that combines the residue of process and performance with loose and marginal mark making. www.amygreen-art.com
