Amy Pleasant

Artist Statement Submitted 2017

My practice includes painting, drawing, and ceramic sculpture and examines the figure from multiple vantage points. Adopting the structure of a diagram or list, I draw images like writing a letter, image after image, shifting very slightly how the figure is read. I am exploring the body and repetitive gesture. With a limited palette and an economy of line, I paint, draw and cut fragmented forms of the figure. I am documenting essential, universal motions and human behaviors, simplified and stripped down.
