The forms and figures of Aimee's imagination
Aimee Perez is the featured artist at the Coconut Grove Arts Festival gallery this month, on Saturday night, she was on hand to meet her fans at the opening exhibit party. Her pieces are quite interesting, weird in a way, but something you might want to take home as a conversation piece.
Here Aimee explains a piece or two to some of her admirers.
Amy says the work is "the story of a woman," meaning her. She remembers her mother telling her stories when she was a child of Cuban fishermen and exotic people and places and she has transferred that to her work over the years. She's a sculpture but she also has some amazing paintings, too. She works with human forms and gestures. The mediums she uses include various types of clays fired at high or low temperatures and surfaced with oxides washes, slips, terra sigillata, engobes and glazes. "I have also been known to to add encaustic, wax, metals, glass, and found objects to add layers to a piece. My work has been exhibited in national and international shows as well as museums and is part of several collections in the United States and Mexico," says Aimee.
