Artist Amy Genser has worked with paper and paint to explore and pursue her obsession with texture, pattern, and color. Evocative of natural forms and organic processes, her work is organic and ordered. She uses paper as pigment and constructs her pieces by layering, painting, cutting, rolling, and combining paper.

The natural world is a clear source for Amy’s work. She is fascinated by the flow of water, the shape of beehives, and the organic irregularity of plants, flowers, rock formations, barnacles, moss, and seaweed. Her pieces bring to mind aerial landscape views, satellite imagery, and biological cellular processes.

Amy’s love affair with paper began in a paper-making course at the Rhode Island School of Design, where she received a masters degree in Graphic Design. Amy lives in West Hartford, CT with her husband and three sons.
