Amy Peterson

She received her BFA in Studio Art from the University of Texas in 2005. She focuses on patterns  intervened by the traces of paint , color as composition. In a way her paintings are like  musical  compositions  that are orchestrated  of the surface. Her explorations  are between  abstraction  and complexity.  In order to provoke color  and form  she explores linear  shapes  that  get  interrupted by  expressionist  traces, this creates new perceptual relationships  when the viewers approach the patterns.

 

In human perception  people  react  to  pattern  recognition as something predictable when this pattern is interrupted,  the mind reacts a different  way  to this  new form, a glitch. This  is  something that in her  work  is deeply explored and makes her painting  technique very  intersting with a quality that captures observation.
