From her own bio:
Out of natural instinct and some necessity, I’m a very private person in most ways. Communicating through art is something I’ve been doing since early childhood. Feeling out of sync with others led me to create other worlds for my mind to occupy and some of this is manifested through visual art. It’s not all just a projection of myself, but it’s also a world view filtered through a particular lens. One that is sometimes clouded by experiences and always a little askew.
This US-based artist known for paintings and illustrations with foreboding but fanciful flair, as well as her popular articulated paper dolls which pay homage to vintage playthings. Her unsettling gouache and pencil girls portray a mysterious and captivating emanation.
Through the Eye, will also be on display throughout September and Earles will be exploring the hidden layers of the self and the subconscious, aspects of the dreaming mind, and what it might mean to become another self, or many selves, when no one is looking. We are expecting to see a mix of original works including oil paintings, gouache paintings, intricate pencil drawings, as well as some archival prints of some of her most recent work, and of course, some of her paper dolls.
Have a look at the wonderment of Amy Earles!
The opening reception for Amy Earles’ “Through the Eye” along with Craig LARotonda and Kevin Titzer is Friday, September 4th from 6 – 9 pm at Stranger Factory.
