Amy Lincoln is a figurative painter with an inclination towards the surreal. She creates work that depicts the natural world but then gives way to a slow-burning abstraction and symbolism. At face value, her paintings feature elements of the natural world: ocean, sand, sun, moon, clouds, mountains, and volcanos. In rendering these elements, the artist relies on sources ranging from the familiar (Lincoln’s own backyard) to the virtual (images found on the internet). She adeptly weaves together these disparate sources to create fantastic worlds rooted in the real. Lincoln has had solo shows at Morgan Lehman Gallery in New York and Monya Rowe Gallery in Saint Augustine, FL, among others. She has been awarded residencies such as the Wave Hill Winter Workspace program, the Inside Out Art Museum Residency in Beijing, and a Swing Space residency from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council. She lives and works in Glendale, Queens.
