Hand Painted Gocco Print (Ink and Gouache) on Antique Envelope
5" x 6"
2012

Amy Rice Artist Statement:
For the past ten years I have used nontraditional print-making methods--including hand cut stencils and a Japanese screen printing toy called a Gocco printer--as a starting point for original mixed media pieces. I use spray paint, acrylics, gouache, and inks, and print on antique papers (preferring handwritten love letters, envelopes, journal pages, sheet music and maps). My surfaces have also included one-hundred year old cedar shingles, barn boards, rusty metal, wooden and metal boxes, wooden panels and discarded cabinet doors.

I am most satisfied when I can make a tangible or visceral connection between the materials used and the image rendered. My work is deeply layered, often both literally and figuratively. My imagery--nostalgic and wistful--is largely biographical and reflective of my pensive nature.

I am as inspired in my art by childhood memories of growing up on a Midwestern farm as I am the urban community in which I now live. I am inspired by bicycles, street art, gardening, random found objects, collective endeavors that challenge hierarchy, acts of compassion, downright silliness, and things with wings.
