Amey is both sculptor and painter. Medium holds no boundaries for him and his horizons span from the beauty and discipline of the Academy, embracing Matisse and Bonnard, to the delights of Craigie Aitchison and Folk Art.
Master painters invariably speak of light and colour, and Amey has that. His palette is stunning and unexpected whilist sculpture informs his exploration of space. Light and colour ignite his paintings whether refracted highlights in the Swimming Pool Series or backlit bars on hot summer nights. His Table Top Series invite us to rediscover still life where everyday objects become fascinating to us, whether the delicate lacework of freesias or discarded shopping bags – each are equally playful.
Paul Amey graduated in Fine Art from Hornsey College of Art in 1979. He has been painting and sculpting for thirty years plus. He set up the Chiltern Sculpture Trail in 1990 and taught Fine Art for many years. He has exhibited at Modern Art, Oxford and museums and galleries in London and Amsterdam, New York and Los Angeles with sculpture and paintings placed in public and private collections.
