Amy Simons Structures April 5 - May 4, 2019

How does it feel to be a single stitch in a sweater? 

Or one penny tile on a bathroom floor? 

Knit with the tension just right, laid down one at a time. 

These purposeful actions are so precise 

in the moment, 

devotional. 

Individuals and their particular contributions,

needed but often unnoticed.

....

Honesty in materials, 

appreciation of history, 

practice. ........

Amy Simons is an American artist living and working in Washington state. She works primarily in ceramics and printmaking. Themes in her work include gradual shifts, intentional mark making, and the space between this line and the next.

A pervading interest in pattern and repetition led me to explore cut paper. The medium facilitates a particular response to material, shape, light, and space. My studio practice encompasses site-specific installations that inhabit public and private, interior and exterior spaces. Light actively engages the work with vivid color, reflective qualities, and dynamic, cast shadows. The pattern-based and sometimes ornate compositions, often begin as a series of hand-cut paper constructions and then transformed into large-scale installations that emphasize texture, rhythm, and light. These sensorial experiences are meant to provoke visceral responses. It is within these sensational moments that we become curious, hopeful and inspired.
