Amy Lincoln makes still life and landscape paintings that feature closely observed representations of specific plant species. She combines the plant imagery with elements of nature such as distant mountains, fluffy clouds, sunrays, glowing moons, and twinkling stars. The plants are colorful, densely patterned, and also a little monstrous. They reach from one end of the composition to the other, overlapping and revealing unnaturally vivid skies.
