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 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 The College of DuPage and Drawing Center’s Artist Archive at the Museum of Modern Art.
