About

This blue paper piece on sintra is my Mixed Media artist Amy Genser. She makes dimensional paper collages. These colorful, textural, one-of-a-kind wall pieces 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. Amy 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.” Her exploration of paper as medium began in a papermaking and bookmaking class she took, while studying for her graduate degree 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. She earned her MFA in Graphic Design from the Rhode Island School of Design. Amy Genser masterfully manipulates her unique paper pieces by cutting, rolling and stacking. These three dimensional works explore texture, pattern and color. Her environmental inspiration derives from flowing water viewed from above. She is also influenced by topography and aerial maps.
