Being "in it" ... 

When you are “in it” … it is difficult to see anything beyond the “it” … or even things nearby.  Everything else is just that.  Else.  As I have been “in it” (“it” being preparations for my first solo exhibition in nearly a decade),  I have taken process snapshots along the way so that one day when I am no longer “in it” I may be able to take a step back and see exactly what that “it” was all about. 

About.”  Now that’s a completely different topic that I will need to delve deeper into later … as I have also gathered multiple inspiration ideas and concepts from other artists’ works and am extremely excited to share those! 

For now, here are some images from the “in it” phase of creating.


UPCOMING ... 

Manus : Solo Exhibition at TAC Gallery (Tulsa Artists' Coalition) October 3 - 25, 2014  Opening Oct 3 from 6-9.

Manus explores the relationships between the hand and technology fusing Rorschach-like imagery of architecture and flora, visually interjecting the hand as the conceptual spine of the work.  Weaving historical photographic processes with digital photographic processes of today,  Amy creates a dialogue between time with her abstracted collodion images.
