Amy Guadagnoli creates abstract woodcuts to explore and respond to the visual, tactile, and experimental world.
Her images are in a gap between visual impressions and the sorcery of names or descriptions. This space is what separates the familiar from the unknown. The artist compares the sensual and the intuitive with the spiritual and symbolic and creates kingdoms where the sacred and the mundane exist in tandem. To achieve this, Guadagnoli confuses, parses, collects and transforms visual effects based on its perception of both the organic and human-created environments, dreams, memories, and myths studied or imagined.
