“After the Rain” by Amy Maas
Value: $5,400

40″ x 36″ acrylic on canvas. 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. This piece was specifically made for JDRF, and Amy has been a longtime supporter of the Greater New England Gala. Amy is represented by Jules Place Gallery in the South End in Boston, MA and Keller Fine Arts in Bethesda, MD. More information can be found at amymaas.comGenerously donated by Amy Maas.
