Artist of the moment…….Amy Myers

 

Amy Myers is an American artist renowned for her very large drawings using a mixture of mediums. Amy Myers were born in Taylor, Texas in the year 1965. For his collegiate education Myers attended the Kansas City Art Institute in Kansas City, Missouri. Myers went on to earn a M.F.A.  at the Art Institute of Chicago.

Myers’ father was  world renowned physicist. Though Myers states she doesn’t know as much about math as her father, she does use physics ideas and math in developing her work.

 

Myers’ works on very large heavy paper, many times the sizes will be 80 to 90 inches on a side. Myers is in no hurry to finish these works taking as long as two years to finish a work.

Price range information: Sorry none available.

In this clip we visit a show featuring the large drawings of Ann Myers:

I love the many variety of shapes and also the contrast that Myers finds in her work.
