Denise Amses

New York, NY

"My artistic practice traverses painting, prints, and public glass and light installations. Though working in numerous media, a few themes permeate my artwork. I engage with natural and geometric forms, plant and biological structures, and the imagery of the cosmos.

I draw from observation, visual interpretations of scientific phenomena, and the boundaries between representation and abstraction. These are points of departure. Central to my approach is the creation of a personalized universe, where I visually explore everything from the details of a dandelion seed to the geometric expression of an exploding star. In my process, I mask, cut, and use translucent layering to create depth and interplay between shape, surface, and color.

In my public work, I seek to awaken people to their surroundings. Art can make a place resonate with beauty, history, or poetry by transforming people’s awareness and defining a space. Through the process of forming, casting, and carving I create large-scale glass installations, exploring visual materiality, light and place."
