Amy Genser plays with paper and paint to explore her fascination and obsession with
texture, pattern, and color. Evocative of natural forms and organic processes, her work
is both irregular and ordered. She constructs her pieces by layering, cutting, rolling, and
combining paper. Amy uses paper as pigment.
The sources of her work from the natural world. She is fascinated by the flow of water,
the organization of beehives, and the organic irregularity of plants, flowers, rock
formations, barnacles, moss, seaweed, aerial views of our landscape, satellite imagery,
and biological cellular processes.
Amy began her love affair with paper in 2000 while taking a paper-making class in
graduate school for Graphic Design at the Rhode Island School of Design. Amy lives in
West Hartford, CT with her husband and three sons, and spends her summers on the
beach in Rhode Island.
Amy's work has been published in several books and publications on paper art. Her
work is included in private and public collections.
