Amy McCartney is a Newcastle based artist from Whitley Bay.
She graduated from Newcastle University in 2020, with a BA (Hons) Fine Art, and studied at Kunstakademie Münster, Germany in Winter-semester 2018/19.
Amy McCartney has always loved to paint, and really enjoys printmaking. She is also interested in Installation art and the expanded field of painting. She has made and exhibited artwork for over 5 years, and all throughout her time as an art student.
Her paintings usually stem from photographic starting points, with photography playing a large role in her creative process. Exploring the fragmented experience of perception, she is fascinated by the multiple layered, fleeting images found in reflections, and the possible ways to explore and translate this imagery through the medium of paint.
