Amy Bravo

Amy Bravo combines symbols and icons from Latin American popular and religious culture and personal family stories, creating intimate yet fantastic visions of a tropical island afterlife. Bravo’s unconventional approach to painting blends the known with the unknown and beauty with confusion. Working on loose canvas that she cuts and stitches together in irregular shapes, Bravo works in a mixture of graphite, painterly techniques, embroidery, and collage. To this, she adds found objects, such as dried leaves, lace, pieces of furniture, and family artifacts.
