About Amy Eichler

Represented Artist

Amy Eichler is a Fayetteville native and full-time acrylic and oil painter who focuses on colorful figures, animals, and anything with eyes and a personality. Her background in dance performance, teaching, and choreography has influenced her work to emphasize expressive color, movement, and character and to appreciate the performance aspect of visual art. Most often incorporating an alla prima approach with a limited color palette of 3-5 paints, Amy pushes color in nature to their most saturated, richest hues and uses contrast and negative space to highlight the subject of her paintings. Amy’s love of teaching has brought her to instruct at multiple locations including Eureka Springs School of the Arts, Crystal Bridges Museum, and virtual and in-person workshops reaching students around the globe. You can find her artwork online at www.amyeichlerart.com and across the region in galleries, shops, and local exhibits. Amy holds a degree in Art from the University of Arkansas and is represented by Art Ventures Gallery in Fayetteville, AR.

Eicher feels that painting, much like dancing, is a physical self-expression to capture the mood, emotion, or personality of the setting or model. Both disciplines focus on texture in movement, allowing bold and graceful gestures to work together to create visually pleasing pictures. Eichler’s background in dance has influenced her painting to emphasize color, rhythm, technique, character, and the living form. She approaches her paintings like a dance routine, performing the creation of art from start to finish in one session. Eichler often revisits pieces to make adjustments, but credits the first explosion of enthusiasm for setting the tone of the painting. Over time, Eichler’s art has grown to be more about the subject of the work and less about the setting, and she often abandons the background to make more room for contrast and negative space. This transition has narrowed her focus to the portrait itself and the abstraction of the figure. She often paints with a limited color palette, but instead layers the colors directly on the canvas to create a variety of vibrant hues. The backgrounds remain flat, allowing the figure to expand off of the edge of the canvas to create a high-contrast, close-up view of the subject.
