Ami Cohen Banker

Artist Statement: I work in a variety of mediums: acrylic, oil, pastels, aquarelle, oil sticks, varnishes, glazes, finishing and surface techniques. I am exploring basic issues of opacity, color, form, depth, obfuscation and revelation in life, language and in art-- I can not help but be influenced by philosophy, poetry, literature, psychological symbolism, fairy tales, music , myths, conceits, and metaphors, especially of strong feminist models-- women's conflicting roles in a changing time throughout the centuries.

I am using background in design, 2nd and 3rd dimensional techniques and aesthetics. My background is integrated with my writing, psychology, my early childhood and life experiences evolving as a woman and mother combining international study to explore these issues in an organized but abstract way. I tend to reinvent the same themes, work from a structure and then proceed by distressing, demolishing, recreating and saving. My major themes are inner restoration and survival, challenging always reality vs. myth
