In Amy's artwork, tensions and serenity coexist, inviting the viewer to consider life's mysteries and ambiguities. Through a reduction and layering process she allows line and form to emerge, disappearing again into obscurity. There is a sense of time and space. Painting is a language, and Amy Cannady's has been described as a kind of "Glossolalia" of its own. She invites the viewer to ponder that something has happened, is happening, or is about to happen. Amy intentionally seeks no control, but looks for the possibilities in the paint and the painting process.
