ARTIST STATEMENT

Amy Bassin works inseveral different mediums, including photography, video, drawing, collage withat the intersection between social issues and formalism.  


 Ihave a collagist's mentality that allows me to continually incorporate andinterpret ‘found subjects/objects’ that often have diverse points of view.  Both my digital editions and one-of-a-kind pieces veer between the abstract and figurative.   Another aspect of my work is collaborating with artists andwriters. Collaborations push me in different directions; open up newavenues of expression and often the resulting work is something each one of uscouldn't achieve on our own.
