Introducing Amy Joy Watson
We are pleased to announce that we now represent Amy Joy Watson. Amy Joy is a South Australian sculptor known for creating colourful, geometric balsa wood sculptures. Often floating with the assistance of helium balloons, her works delicately balance on a single point or form a stack using magnetic attraction.
Born in Adelaide 1987, Amy has been included in various solo and group exhibitions throughout Australia, including Westspace 2012 and at the Contemporary Art Space of South Australia. Amy won the 2011 Adelaide Critics Circle Contemporary Art Award and the SAlife Emerging Artist Award for the 2009 SALA Festival.
In 2012 Amy undertook a 3-month studio residency at ISCP (International Studio and Curatorial Program) New York, sponsored by the 2011 CARCLEW Ruth Tuck Scholarship. Amy was also awarded a 2-month studio residency at Takt Kunstprojektraum, Berlin Germany 2009. Amy has been successful in receiving an Australia Council for the Arts Tokyo Studio Residency, which she will take up in early 2014.
