Amazing Looking Swirling Ocean Reefs Created From Vibrant Rolls of Paper


Amy Genser, a mixed-media artist has masterfully made some “paintings” which show amazing-looking ocean reefs designed with coloured mulberry paper put into rolls. But they don’t really look like paper, do they? Anyway, they do mimic the apparent randomness of nature and the real world.

As she put it when it came to her inspiration:

“the flow of water, the shape of beehives, and the organic irregularity of plants, flowers, rock formations, barnacles, moss, and seaweed.”

The colours too are influenced by what one would find in nature with often found dark blues, beige, greens and clearwater aquamarines. The paper tubes can be seen in a various number of ways from bubbles, small stones, pebbles, corals. Put together like that, they offer an amazing sense of calmness, as if something found on the water’s edge.

Her portfolio. covers a wide range of artistic endeavours and projects. One of them was a whopping 150 feet installation at the Nemours/Alfred I. duPont Hospital for Children cafeteria which was later exhibited in the US and across Europe in places like Elisa Contemporary Art and Galerie NUMMER40.
