About Amy Genser

Hartford, CT

Amy Genser works with paper and paint to explore her obsession with texture, pattern, and
color. Evocative of natural forms and organic processes, her work is simultaneously irregular
and ordered. She uses paper as pigment and constructs her pieces by layering, cutting,
rolling, and combining paper. The process is a meditation, which Amy describes as a beautiful
dream. Her hands take over and her mind is quiet.
The natural world is a clear source for Amy’s work. She is fascinated by the flow of water, the
shape of beehives, and the organic irregularity of plants, flowers, rock formations, barnacles,
moss, and seaweed. Her pieces bring to mind aerial landscape views, satellite imagery, and
biological cellular processes.
Amy’s love affair with paper began in 2000 in a paper-making class at the Rhode Island
School of Design, where she got a masters degree in Graphic Design. Amy lives in West
Hartford, CT with her husband and three sons, and spends her summers on the beach in
Rhode Island.
