“CAUCHEMAR is the nightmare of life, creative optimism in the face of so many hardships. Stills from a dream, those vibrant and dizzyingly viscous visions you see on the backs of your lids when you close your eyes or geometric reinterpretations of a surreal reality. They’re an observation of shape, texture and especially colour that is an extension of my heart, measured by brain and fueled by my visceral fire.” – Amy Hood
Up until the 20th of December 2016, Amy Hood presents a window into the surreal, super saturated and slightly sinister mind of a retro-tainted soul trapped in modern culture. Characterised by simplistic geometric forms, the ten 30×40 inch large scale hand carved linoleum monoprints explore the reverberance of color, fantasy and tragedy as seen from an aesthetically unique perspective.
Made of ink on black cotton paper CAUCHEMAR marks Amy Hood’s promising printmaking gallery debut.
