They have lost their faces

Amy’s art explores the connections between trauma, the depths of the unconscious mind, and the realm of art. Through her current creative journey, her art becomes a space for self-reflection, evoking unease and unsettling emotions. Her body of work is both thought-provoking and a cathartic release. Amy is drawn to the surreal and the macabre, integrating dreams with reality in her artwork to stimulate reaction and spark thought. She explores the subconscious to bring to life strange and surreal worlds. Her work typically blurs the lines between what is real and what is imagined, which is frequently unpleasant. She attempts to capture this using various media, typically through painting, drawing, and sculpture. Twisted and contorted bodies, monster-like figures and estranged interiors, together with subdued colour schemes and dark tones occupy her dreamlike paintings that explore her own subconscious distress.
