Connecticut-based artist Amy Eisenfeld Genser is inspired by underwater scenes. Using rolls of paper and acrylic on canvas, Eisenfeld Genser creates mixed media art that is reflective of the stony corals andd polyps that one would typically see while scuba diving near a coral reef. The artist explains in more detail: "The sources of my work are textures, patterns, and grids. I look for forms that can be repeated to create a pattern when they are joined. My work tries to capture the essence of an experience or an image I have seen." She is fascinated by the flow of water, the shape of beehives, and the organic irregularity of plants, flowers, rock formations, barnacles, moss, and seaweed. Her pieces bring to mind aerial landscape views, satellite imagery, and biological cellular processes. A side view of each piece provides a three dimensional depth to an already tactile painting. Her mixed media works are so greatly detailed, viewers are inspired to reach out and touch the rounded shapes created from spirals of recycled paper, or the textures that are created from a smattering of acrylic across the canvas.
