AMY PARK

Amy Park’s large scale watercolor paintings take Modernist architectural facades as their point of departure. Grids are laboriously constructed through repetitive pencil marks and precise watercolor strokes, creating enormous, optically charged fields that mirror the order, layering, scale, and density of information of the urban experience.

 

Park received a BFA in 1999 and an MFA in 2003 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and also studied at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and Ox-Bow Summer Art School. She was a recipient of a Marie Walsh Sharpe Space Program Award in 2007-2008, and an Artist-In-Residence at the Serenbe Institute in 2012. Her work has been exhibited widely in the US, including Morgan Lehman Gallery, New York, NY; Steven Harvey Fine Art Projects, New York, NY, The Suburban (Oak Park, IL) at Project Row House, Houston, TX; The Poor Farm Experiment, Manawa, WI; Kopeikin Gallery, Los Angeles, CA; and Gagosian Gallery, Los Angeles, CA. Her work is in the permanent collections of Fidelity Investments; The Cleveland Clinic; Deloitte and Touche USA; Microsoft Corporation; The College of DuPage; and Drawing Center’s Artist Archive at the Museum of Modern Art. She lives and works in Long Island City, NY with her partner, artist Paul Villinski and their son, Lark.
