Amy Helfand

Brooklyn-based artist Amy Helfand works in many mediums, but a passion for landscape ties her oeuvre together: Collages of plant life appear in prints, fabrics and carpets. For an exhibition at the Frye Art Museum in Seattle, she created a collection inspired by the Wild Garden at Wave Hill. Of the show, the museum notes, “In her exuberant designs Helfand juxtaposes the organic and the manmade, nature and culture, fantasy and reality. The results are imagined wonderlands comprising site plans and unrecognizeable, yet distinctly biomorphic forms.” Not bad for wool!
