AMY ALBREACHT
September 2009

NY, NY –  Amy is a sculptor who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. She makes objects that are surrogates for natural environments. Despite their artificial materials and geometric constructions, the structures feel organic. Many of her works mechanically expand and contract which is a nod to the life cycle of all natural things and to the constraints of urban, apartment living. She has an MFA from Yale and a BFA from Washington University in St. Louis. She has exhibited in New York, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Los Angeles, the Netherlands and has most recently shown at the International Print Center of New York as part of the collective Holding, Her Shape Collects. In 2006 she created a site-specific work for the Geumgang Nature Art Biennale in Gongju, South Korea.
