Amy Dynan: Statement
Amy Dynan’s art practice uses the framework of beauty to explore the relationship between humanity and nature. Merging photorealism with abstract sensibilities, Amy’s monochromatic artworks document moments of sublimity, movement and fragility in nature. An award-winning artist, Amy is known for her dynamic approach to drawing and her nuanced balance of conceptual rigour and classical skill. Using techniques, which range from traditional chiaroscuro to gestural marks, her work reveals elements of both ﬁguration and abstraction – not as oppositions but as devices to bring about maximum expressivity.
“For me, drawing is a lens through which the spectrum of our existence is revealed, and a means to marvel at how lucky we are to feel it fully. To this end my work documents nature in flux and celebrates the beauty of what we stand to lose.”
