Merging gestural, geometric and process-based abstraction, Amy Vensel employs a system of invented rules to bridge elements of chance and control in her paintings. Influenced by the saturated palette of the digital landscape, her vivid compositions explore the relationships between authority and autonomy, nature and technology, and individuality and conformity. Vensel’s paintings have been shown across the United States and Europe, with recent exhibitions at The Painting Center (NY), ESXLA (CA), PARK (Netherlands), Trestle Gallery (NY), Harwood Art Center (NM), and Real Art Ways (CT). A graduate of Syracuse University, she has been awarded residencies at the Millay Colony for the Arts, the Mark Rothko Art Centre, and the Vermont Studio Center. Vensel’s work has appeared in The New York Times, been reviewed in Art New England, and is included in the book, “PARK 2016-2018,” published by The Platform for Visual Arts, the Netherlands. Vensel lives and works in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
