‘You may be transported to a misty evergreen lakeside, a distant coastal cliff shrouded by mist or deep underwater in a turquoise expanse .’
Amy Albrights subjects can be quite vast, sometimes veering towards abstract, other times recognisable landscapes, but there is always an element of intrigue and unknown.
A subtle tonal ranges of colour is used, an inky consistency of oil paint caresses the canvas, often creating misty, watery, unclear images that
are half imagined, half real. Layering the paint, starting off loose, Amy uses expressive gestural
marks outlining her composition and then begins a timely process of ‘reining it in’ by blending, fading, pouring and glazing the oil paint in
numerous layers, as though an atmospheric cloud has enveloped.
Sometimes Amy incorporates dendrite branch like details as an anchor in an otherwise ethereal world, or the patterns of the way water finds it
way though sand on the shore.
An explorer and lover of the natural world, the underwater world and the ever changing elements; Amy takes inspiration from her travels,
recently Iceland and the dynamic changing weather, tides and coastline of Cornwall where she lives. The boundaries of where land and water
merge is an ongoing and perhaps never ending focus for the artist.
