Amy Kaufman

American, b. 1968
Bay Area artist Amy Kaufman's work focuses on pattern and repetition. She works in a variety of media such as paint, charcoal, pastel, silverpoint, and graphite, to transform fixed stripes, meandering lines, and accumulations of shapes into bold compositions that suggest space and movement. Continually shifting between figuration and abstraction, her work conveys a tension between the tactile and the illusory. With an ongoing immersion in the history of art, Kaufman is inspired by a diverse range of sources that span centuries of creating and an expansive array of approaches that allows her to translate careful observations of specific sources like Ottoman calligraphy or seemingly ordinary designs of tire treads, into complex works whose origins and references are often obscured.
