 Artist Bio

 

Amy Weil is an abstract mixed media painter best known for her densely layered and visceral encaustic work that references the grid. Amy’s signature vocabulary Includes circular and organic shapes that challenge the geometry of the grid creating a playful dialogue.  

The mystery of what you cannot fully see or know is also a recurring theme in Amy’s work and she often creates windows and portals in her work where images are playing peek a boo with the viewer. 

The act of creating a work by fusing, scraping and incising into the wax becomes a meditation for Amy. This direct and intuitive process of layering and subtracting enables Amy to create work that is emotionally charged and the end result is always a surprise. Her work is a dance between her intention and the process itself.
