Assemblage Art

by Jessica Burko of Reclaimed To You

'Family of Three' by Amy Hitchcock

I have always been a fan of assemblage art, long before I even knew of the assemblage master Joseph Cornell, and my current favorite artist working in this genre is local Boston artist Amy Hitchcock.

Amy creates emotionally moving artwork that incorporates found objects and images. Of her work she states, "My assemblages and collages attempt to tell stories based upon such items as vintage photographs, sewing notions, discarded toys, postcards, and other paper ephemera. I believe that these found objects can bring forth memories of one’s past and family history. It is my hope that by using such materials, my work is interesting and accessible to the viewer." Amy exhibits her art throughout New England and you can also see it on her great web site, - - check it out!
