Above and Below - SOLO EXHIBITION at Artwave west, Dorset

The mysterious paintings by Cornish Artist, Amy Albright have been exhibited by Artwave West, since its opening in 2009. Albright’s fascination with the interconnecting forms and patterns of the natural world has led her over the past ten years to evolve her own distinct visual language. Ambiguity between vastness and microscopic has always been an interest and this has manifested itself in paintings of exquisite enigma. In her latest works produced for this exhibition a subtle connection to the landscape is revealed. Interludes within veils of mist expose hidden pine forests; suggestion of branches and formations begin to materialise. These dendrite (branch like) patterns evolve into further references reminiscent of the grandeur of the universe. The fact that the same pattern can be found on different scales, for example in a tiny single brain neuron or on a larger scale in the path of a meandering river, is most fitting. Albright’s working process has become increasingly fluid and in seeking to utilise spontaneous painting methods, she has opened up an even greater emphasis on suggestions of the unknown.  Gould 2015
