Amy Park's large-scale watercolors illuminate the artistry of modern architecture with crisp blocks of color and mesmerizing detail. Inspired by the forms and patterns found in the New York cityscape, Amy works from her own photographs of major landmarks and skyscrapers to create hard, geometric compositions that border abstraction. Bringing color and light to an often muted subject matter, Amy highlights the sculptural qualities of these buildings with a skill and control that defies the usual limitations of the medium.
Park holds an MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her work has been included in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including shows at Kopeikin Gallery (Los Angeles, CA), Hespe Gallery (San Francisco, CA), Project Row House (Houston, TX), Morgan Lehman Gallery (New York, NY) and Griffin Gallery (London, UK). Her work is in many significant private and public collections, including Cleveland Clinic, Fidelity Investments and Microsoft Corporation, among others. She lives and works in New York, NY.
