Amy Albright was born in Plymouth, England 1985 and graduated from University College Falmouth in 2007 and currently lives and works in Cornwall. Amy Albright has developed a visual language that alludes to the interconnecting natural forms and patterns that surround us. Numerous sources are explored and referenced in the work: meteorological, astronomical, satellite and mic...roscopic imagery, as well as her own investigative photographs.
Her painting process is organic, imitating nature's ephemeral flux. The work evolves by allowing and capturing elements of chance, and balancing with an intuitive response to previous marks.
In paintings of great richness and sensitivity, she allows glimpses into a world that is not always visible to the naked eye. Minute fragments and traces that seem mysteriously familiar emerge out of deep luminous surfaces of colour. Through an intriguing relationship between macro and microscopic, the viewer is often called upon to question their sense of scale.
On the verge between figuration and abstraction, Albright’s paintings communicate an intimate view of the intangible and ambiguous in nature, offering clues for the viewer to contemplate.
In 2007 she won the Midas Award, culminating in a solo exhibition at Newlyn Art Gallery. She has exhibited in group exhibitions in London, Nottingham, and the South West including: Cornwall Contemporary Gallery in Penzance and Artonomy Fine Art in Truro. In 2009 she was selected to participate in a residency programme with Gallery Tresco, Isles of Scilly.
