BIO

Amy Bassin’s photography, moving images and works on paper create non-linear visual narratives inviting fresh introspection and mise-en-scène beyond the representation of captured reality. With a background in abstract drawing and painting her work is informed by concepts that focus on interpretation, metaphor, and ambiguity.

Exhibitions include Governors Island, NYC; Equity Gallery, NYC; Truro Center CastleHill, MA; Jason McCoy Gallery Online, NYC; Lenscratch; Tussle Projects, NYC; and The National Museum of Fine Arts, Kyrgyzstan. Her latest text-based art collaboration with writer Mark Blickley, Dream Streams was published by Claire Songbirds Publishing House.

Her time-based moving images have been screened in Brooklyn, New York; Copenhagen, Denmark; and the CICA Museum (Czong Institute for Contemporary Art ), South Korea. Other videos represented the United States in the 2020 world tour of Time Is Love; have been nominated for ‘Best Experimental Film’ at City University of New York 10th Annual Film Festival, and was a semi-finalist at the International Festival of ExperimentalVideo and Film at Bilbao, Spain.

She lives and works in NYC, attended the School of Visual Arts and is co-founder of the international artists' collective, Urban Dialogues.
