Idyll

Amber Albrecht

DREAM-FILLED LANDSCAPES, PORTRAITS,
AND ABSTRACTS IN BEAUTIFUL DETAIL.

IN STORES APRIL 2012

Amber Albrecht's work is rooted in magic, folklore, and postfeminist neo-romanticism. The newest entry in the Petit Livre imprint of accessible art books, Idyll comprises a series of paintings, screen prints, and drawings.

Much of Albrecht's work is inspired by the dreaminess of childhood, whether expressing her cloudy recollections of the storybooks she read as a child (stories populated by strange creatures, impossible happenings, and oneiric landscapes) or the forested West Coast landscapes that surrounded her. On the pages of Idyll, a series of interconnected myths emerges fully formed, each myth articulating a sense of wistfulness for a past that never was. By turns surreal, fantastical, and absurd, Albrecht constructs these pieces with the vivid yet subtle values that are a product of her screen-printing work.
