Loving Amy Sol's work

25 August 2008

I thought I'd introduce you to an immensely talented artist whose work I've long admired (although she has a HUGE following, so you may already be aware of her art). Amy Sol creates the most divine dreamlike artworks on timber. The combination of her innocent looking subjects, beautiful technique and muted colour palette results these gorgeous etheral paintings.

This info/bio came from Amy's website:
Amy Sol spent her childhood years in Korea then moved to Las Vegas, NV where she currently lives and works. Though the style of her work is greatly influenced by a combination of manga, folk-art, vintage illustration and modern design, she remains a self taught artist. She has dedicated many years of her life mixing pigments and mediums to achieve a unique color palette of subtly muted tones. The artist works intuitively from the beginning to end of each piece, with the intent that each painting's theme or message can be interpreted subjectively. Within these delicate works, you may often find whimsical landscapes populated with exotic plants, animal and females... Amongst the expressions of each character are notions of peaceful reflection and a sense of companionship.

I was really disappointed to find out after the event that Amy spoke at Semi-Permanent in Sydney earlier this year. Oh how much would I LOVE to own an original Amy Sol! To see more of Amy's work visit her blog and website.
