Amy Duval’s work is a metaphor for the simultaneously beautiful and messy nature of the human experience. The wall-based installations make reference to the ever-changing and continuously developing urban landscape of contemporary society, while instilling a sense of hope that arises from the ashes of destruction. The ceramic sculptures are made using a variety of building techniques, and are created through the consideration of an imagined marriage between two opposing ideas: the mechanic and organic.
What kind of new forms and structures would emerge from the combination of these differing concepts? The creation of a hybrid structure is meant to explore the idea of a new form of rebirth, a rebirth that arises from the destruction of worlds coming together in order to create a new one.
