“My work is about the heart’s longing to be connected to the largeness of life, the timeless arc of the universe. I try to evoke what Zen practitioners call nothing and everything. The sense of being one with the universe.” Amy Cheng

Amy Cheng Description


ABOUT AMY CHENG

In her fluid and evocative style, Amy Cheng merges Western painting with the Eastern sensibilities of her heritage. Born in Taiwan, raised in Brazil, and educated in the US, Amy has developed a painting vocabulary influenced by the interplay of divergent cultures -- but with a fresh, contemporary view of our connectedness to the world.

In her work, Amy strives to express a timeless collective culture. She creates tension and drama in the juxtaposition of cultures, times, and forms of expression. She invites the viewer to meditate on ancient images to discover the ways they still speak to us. Her paintings set up a dialogue between these ancient forms and her own personal sense of playfulness. Amy’s oil paintings often rely on repeated pattern, brilliant color, a sensual delight in the decorative and an intricate layering of space to engage the viewer on a visceral and emotional level. Her paintings challenge the viewer to take their blinders off and see the world through new eyes.

Her favorite sources of inspiration are Asian and Islamic decorative patterns, Chinese folk art, Egyptian wall paintings, and mystical and alchemical imagery from the Middle Ages. Her interest in folk art stems from the belief that folk or popular art embodies the psyche of a society – that the simplicity and accessibility of folk art give it a sense of timelessness.
