About

Thus black and white dimensional paper pieces are by mixed media artist, Amy Genser. These textural, one-of-a-kind framed wall works embody movement and processes. She masterfully manipulates paper -- each piece being cut, rolled and stacked -- to mimic organic forms and natural processes. While starting as flat piles of paper, her artwork builds and grows into 3-dimensional constructions filled with color, texture and patterns. This piece hangs beautifully on its own or alongside others from this Black and White Square Genser series. The framed size is 25.5 x 25.5 x 2 inches. The artwork size is 24 x 24 x 2 inches. The artist explains her work by saying, “The sources of my work are textures, patterns, and grids. I look for forms that can be repeated to create a pattern when they are joined. My work tries to capture the essence of an experience or an image I have seen. I often look to the natural world for inspiration. I am fascinated by the flow of water, the organization of beehives, and the organic irregularity of plants, flowers, rock formations, barnacles, moss, and seaweed. Aerial views of our landscape can also be compelling; it is interesting how the organization of our landscape becomes quilt-like when viewed from above.” She began exploring paper as medium papermaking as a graduate student in graphic design at Rhode Island School of Design. Today, her work has been exhibited at many venues throughout the northeast United States and has been featured in publications such as Architectural Digest. Additionally, her work is in important private and public collections worldwide.
