Flowing lines and organic forms race throughout the work of Amy Maas, evoking the tunes she listens to as she paints.  Driven by ways in which music connects and defines us on a deeper level she explores multiple levels of consciousness. Maas notes that her paintings also address her ambivalence about chaos versus order, aging versus youth and thoughtfulness versus spontaneity.  The sounds and pieces of music that sneak into her work don't always start that way, but somehow end up there.  Each step is part of the whole. New tools and new risks are all possibilities that keep her coming back for more.
