Amy Rice


Amy uses nontraditional print-making methods–including hand cut stencils and a Japanese screen printing toy called a Gocco printer–as a starting point for original mixed media pieces. She uses spray paint, acrylics, gouache, and inks, and prints on a variety of surfaces including wood, fabric and antique papers (preferring handwritten love letters, envelopes, journal pages, sheet music and maps). She is most satisfied when she can make a tangible or visceral connection between the materials used and the image rendered. Her work is deeply layered, often both literally and figuratively. Her imagery–nostalgic and wistful–is largely biographical and reflective of my pensive nature. Amy is as inspired in my art as much by childhood memories of growing up on a Midwestern farm as she is the urban community in which she now lives. She is also influenced by bicycles, street art, gardening, random found objects, collective endeavors that challenge hierarchy, acts of compassion, downright silliness, and things with wings.
