Amy Reckley is a multidisciplinary artist working in drawing, painting, screen printing, and installation art. Her work embodies the investigation and process of building up and tearing down any surface. This direct action leads her in an inquiry of the complex language of contemporary drawing and painting. Often on the cusp between the representational and abstract, Reckley references architecture and landscape as a way of placing both time and experience on a single plane.
Reckley has exhibited throughout the United States and internationally. She has recently installed site-related works in the Big Santa Anita Canyon, California and at The Symphony in the Foothills Gallery in Kansas. Other significant exhibitions include The Soap Factory in Minneapolis, the Loveland Feed and Grain in Colorado, and the Saugatuck Center for the Arts in Michigan. Her residency awards include the Barstow Artist-in-Residence at Central Michigan University, ART342, and Ox-Bow Summer Schoo of Art and Artists’ Residency.
Amy Reckley received her MFA in Drawing from Colorado State University, a Post- Baccalaureate Certificate in Painting and Serigraphy from SACI College of Art & Design in Florence, Italy, and a BA from Kalamazoo College.
Reckley lives and works in West Michigan.
