Amy Lincoln, Trees and Moon Rays (Blue, Cyan and Magenta), 2023; Limited Edition Print
Amy Lincoln is a New York-based artist who paints dream-like scenes of imagined landscapes, atmospheric activity, and vibrant fantastical foliage. She completed her MFA in Painting at Temple University, Tyler School of Art in 2006, and her BA in Studio Art at University of California, Davis in 2003. Lincoln’s work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Taymour Grahne Projects, London; Morgan Lehman Gallery, New York; and Monya Rowe Gallery, Saint Augustine; among others. Additionally, it has been featured in group exhibitions at New York venues such as Sargent’s Daughters, Regina Rex, and Thierry Goldberg, as well as at others around the world. The artist has also been awarded with residencies by Wave Hill, Bronx; Inside Out Art Museum, Beijing; and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, New York.
Trees and Moon Rays (Blue, Cyan and Magenta) is a graphic rendition of the titular objects, with radiant light beaming towards the leaves and tree trunks that spread across a horizonless landscape. Gradient tones of blues, purples, and pinks denote the contrast between light and shadow, forming a dynamic image that feels simultaneously figurative and abstract. The work derives from Lincoln’s recent foray into Photoshop, which is used to design images that line up with her painting practice. During the creative process of Sun and Trees, the artist decided to shift the hues, in her own words, “from a sunny daytime scene to a more otherworldly, moonlit night scene.” For this edition, she will additionally hand-embellish each print by adding various new details.

“I love the idea of supporting Prospect Park. Living in an urban environment, without being able to connect to the natural world, can really wear on you. Spaces like Prospect Park allow us New Yorkers to have the best of both worlds.”
