This is part of a series exploring both the water reflections but also the way water on skin just below the surface distorts and changes the way you see it.
Born and raised in New Zealand, Amy Devlin has lived in the UK for 20 years, first in London, then since 2015 in rural Kent.
Amy’s current body of work focuses on bodies in water and bodies of water. “I love the exploration, chasing the physical memory of being underwater. That tranquil feeling of the sun on your body even through the water, being at one but also entirely separate.”
Although Amy works in an almost photographic manner, her intention is not to create photorealist paintings preferring the texture of paint and brushstrokes to add to depth of the image.
Amy sends her work out from her studio at the bottom of her garden to private collections across the world.
