Amy Epperson is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Portland, OR. With a background in Architectural studies, Amy’s work has organically evolved from a number of material experiments. Their focuses presently lie with fibers and soft sculpture, primarily in making garments under the name A Person Made. Often improvisational in process, their work inhabits an amalgamation of feelings towards a history of human nature, the spaces we exist in and the roles we fill, resulting in wearable shapes and forms.

 

The work is at once personal and impersonal as it is both an extension of the artist’s self and whomever embodies it. Paying attention to texture, tone, and silhouette, the elements incorporated into a single piece are often labor intensive, but work towards a cohesive simplicity. In the words of Eva Hesse, "I would like the work to be non-work. This means that it would find its way beyond my preconceptions... It is the unknown quantity from which and where I want to go. As a thing, an object, it accedes to its non-logical self. It is something, it is nothing.”
