Amy Vensel

Amy Vensel is an American painter based in the desert borderlands of New Mexico. Her meticulous process involves the layering of acrylic polymer and pigment to create luminous paintings that echo the backlit screens of today’s digital landscape. A graduate of Syracuse University, Vensel has been awarded residencies at the Millay Colony for the Arts and the Vermont Studio Center. She is the recipient of an Artist Resource Trust Fund grant and a Lancaster Museum and Public Art Foundation Award. Vensel’s work has appeared in The New York Times, been reviewed in Art New England, and is included in the book, “PARK 2016-2018,” published by The Platform for Visual Arts, the Netherlands. Vensel’s work has been exhibited at the New Britain Museum of American Art, Connecticut; the Museum of Art and History, Lancaster, California; the Mattatuck Museum, Waterbury, Connecticut; Trestle Gallery, Brooklyn, New York; ESXLA, Los Angeles, California; Real Art Ways, Hartford, Connecticut; and The Painting Center, New York.
