Amy Sol is an American artist of Korean ancestry currently living in Las Vegas, Nevada. She is a member of the pop surrealist or “lowbrow” art community. She typically paints upon treated wooden panel, incorporating the grain of the wood into the painting.
“The grain is the start of the motion; the flow. The wood always reminds me to keep things moving. When you look at wood grain, sometimes — and you can almost feel the sense of something alive, of course it was once alive, but that imprint; the foot-print of it is still there.”
