About The Artist

Known for her sculptures, ceramics, paintings and fine ink drawings, Amy Gartrell draws upon pop cultural sources such as rotary telephones and commercial eighties stylistic gesture such as floating scribbles and their suggestion of space. Additionally of interest is the way that popular vocabulary is reflected in high art forms – a connection only apparent once an age has passed.

[She] uses playful geometry making relevant the wild pop formations of Elizabeth Murray but also Joan Mirò. Precisely executed, Gartrell’s works are of singular appearance and humor expressing optimistic zeal and suggesting the experiential claustrophobia of the not always benign home. For instance think David Lynch.
