New Works by Amy Barker-Wilson
About the Artist
Amy Barker-Wilson’s abstract paintings give us a sense of mystery and possibility. Her goal and also method of painting is to find the “next step” in the perceptual journey. She invites the viewer to extend his/her own perceptual imaginings along this trail.
The paintings build from experiences on journeys both in Turkey and Andalusian Spain, as well as an appreciation of traditional patterns and their architectural dynamics. They are playful, often studied and unplanned mixtures, incorporating geormetric traditions and calligraphic elements among spontaneously arising mixed media of many colors and materials. They evoke a feeling of ancient beauty and lively activity using highly saturated colors often washed out by time and sun, and a silence that pervades beyond the forms — fun, wild, and meditatively calm at the same time.
