Artist Statement: For the past six years I have been experimenting with the form of the Moebius strip, a self-imposed constraint within which I have made a wide variety of generally abstract compositions.
bio: For Amy Bright Unfried, sculpture is her second career. With degrees in economics from Wellesley and Yale, her first career was in economics and finance, but a search for a new path later led her to making bronze sculpture. After training in classical realism at art schools in New York, Amy’s first body of sculpture focused on the human figure in a classical realist style. Later, after moving full time to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, she found herself making a new kind of work, small trees directly cast from interesting branches she found on her walks in the valley. Familiar local birds settled in the branches of these little trees. As more time passed, her work took a turn toward abstraction as she began to explore the form of the Moebius strip in compositions of all kinds.
