Collectors often express that Amicas work produces a mesmerising, meditative and calming response in their surroundings. Her work engages a wide audience, including those who often disassociate with abstract art.
Inspiration comes from natural beauty and natural wonder. Though her work is purely abstract, our intuition recognises a visual language that mimics the currents of the ocean, natural formations of the earth, a flower in new bloom or the patterns of precious stone.
Her work conveys the poetry of creation and serves as a window to an inner passage where viewers can experience a peaceful state of being

"Stone-like" forms float, loosely connected in an apparent void of negative space, but underneath this expanse, lies the concealed elements of a whole painting. The underpainting is essential in creating the fluidity and connectedness of the forms that become the final anchors of the piece. I move the paint around intuitively with water, gravity and spray paint, layering with pours and washes to imitate natural processes and formations. As the paint settles into itself, the idea of a painting is established.
I seek out organic shapes, highlighting them to chart a pathway through the work. Everything left is concealed behind an opaque, flat ground, and the forms arise as the focal point. When there is nothing left to mask, and the tension between ground and form, positive and negative is balanced, resolution is achieved.
