Amy Gillespie


My sculptural wall pieces capture the colors and textures of meadows, fields and gardens. My brushstroke is dyed and wet-felted wool. As I felt, I mix in chunks and tubes of color to achieve my impressionistic palette. In this unusual approach to using felt, the complexity of my patterns is only revealed when I cut into the felt and turn it on its edge. I want my pieces to exude the same calmness and serenity one feels outside in nature.
