Born and raised in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Amy Duval received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from Kwantlen Polytechnic University in 2017 where she focused on ceramic sculpture and installation based work. Merging slip casted and wheel thrown forms, Amy creates site specific installations that explore her interests in the mechanic, organic, internal and external, as well as drawing and painting. These hybrid forms are simultaneously perverse and familiar, futile and strange, and explore ideas of growth and transformation in relation to machinery and the human body. She sees working directly on the wall as a method of bridging the gap and exploring the tension between sculpture and painting.
She currently resides in Toronto, Ontario where she is an artist in residence at Harbourfront Centre.
