Amelia Briggs is an artist working with fiber, painting, and installation to illustrate the complexities of our interior landscape. She translates feeling into sinuous, gestural forms that relate to our bodies and the natural world. These forms appear to embrace, elevate, caress, and reinforce, and their subtle color changes indicate a process of growth within a firm boundary.
