one of Amy’s flower photo collages, 2009. 25.5 x 19 in. ($5,000).
Amy told me – she puts the actual objects onto the scanner bed – to get the effects she is looking for – a kind of hyper realism – that actually goes very romantic.
one of the more unusual pieces is a kind of modernist dollhouse – that riffs off the modernist designs Amy has painted directly onto the gallery walls. it comes on a very stylized pedestal !!
AMY GARTRELL, ‘Compartmentalization is Cool’, 2010. Glazed ceramics, model chair, MDF, acrylic.
