Amy Brener works with layered resin, concrete, found materials, and reflective and distorted surfaces to created light sensitive totemic sculptures. She refers to these objects as resembling “artifacts of an imagined future.” Though each sculpture is carefully planned via the built wooden framed and selectively layered materials, the end product is always unique and often left to chance. Brener was born in Victoria, BC and now lives and works in New York City. She received her MFA from Hunter College in 2010 and was a participant of Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture in 2011. She was a 2012 Fellow in the Artist-in-Residence program at the Bemis Center of Contemporary Art in Omaha, NE. Her work has been exhibited in New York, Toronto and London.
