Amy Thompson-Hill - Artist Statement

I'm a self-taught mixed-media artist using acrylic, paper and photo transfers. I am inspired simply by what's around me...the mottled colors of architecture exposed by numerous years of painting, the texture of crumbling plaster, the distressed appearance of objects after decades and decades of being. I incorporate  layers of paint and texture for a sense of depth and to create the look of a timeworn piece...often abandoning the paintbrush for palette knives and sculpting tools to enhance the texture. I’m not sure where each piece will take me, it’s a process like the weathering of the objects that inspire me. My goal with each completed piece is to showcase the vintage feel of yesteryear in a new light.
