Amy Louise Hambrecht's BFA thesis exhibition, "¾ Hopeful," opening reception: Sunday, April 29, 2-4 p.m.

 “3/4 Hopeful” is a body of work that articulates specific moments with ballpoint pen on 11 linen pillowcases hand-tatted by descendants of her family in Germany. The intimacy of the pillowcase and the juxtaposition of imagery showcase the artist’s skill and thoughts that encompass her daily life; shifts of known and unknown events in her future.

Hambrecht is a painter working across media, specifically pen, embroidery and paint; she considers a visual language that investigates the inconsistency of time through space.

Hambrecht’s paintings and their collage, ghost-like elements interlock in complex visual fields charged with colliding realms of the unknown and the familiar. Hambrecht will be graduating with a BFA concentration in painting and a minor in art history. Her long-term goal is to establish her name by creating works that share her story.
