Amy Gordon is a fervent and soulful painter and designer. Her abstract work is a reflection of her diverse polarities growing up in rural North Carolina, Fabric and Menswear design life in New York City and Yoga teaching.
Her pieces are inspired by the depths and complexity and fragility of the human experience. Through color, texture and negative space, she mimics the ebb and flow of the complex states of being.
The premise of each work is the struggle to rise from darkness, pain and confusion of life's elements to merge to clarity, light and forgiveness.
Her work is an invitation to empathize and connect. Amy, the artist and human, is in every piece she creates. Acrylic, oil,pastels and mixed media are organically combined with her fingers to mix, gracefully apply sand and scrub her way to a place of acceptance and beauty.
Her studies at Textile and Design school of NCSU, fabric designer for Geoffrey Beene, Oscar De La Rente and Nautica, as well as her studies in London, San Francisco gives her diversity that is uncommon. She most well known as one of Greensboro's prime commission artists, selling over 500 paintings and shown in galleries such as X-Posure, Gregory Clark and Love art in Connecticut. She is also represented by Paul Robinson Fine Art in Atlanta, Vivid Interiors and Irving Park Art /Frame and Lucky Fish Galleries.
Today her work ranges from sleek and minimal to organic, complex and multifarious. Amy brings a unique balance of subtle surprise and authenticity to her all of her paintings.
