Amy Fairchild is an abstract photographer with an eye for color and mood. Minimalism is my main focus. Taking out the “busy-ness” of the real world and creating something to relax in. Amy is currently showcasing her art in the traveling exhibition called “Color My World”.

Color My World

“Color induces a wide range of emotion depending upon the hue of the photograph. From soothing to chaotic, color makes us feel, makes us alive. My photographs should make you fall into them, become a part of them, experience them. Minimalism is my way of seeking a simplistic peace. Peace from the everyday world; from work, from school, from people. A time to fall into myself, my soul. I’m stretching to see beyond what is there. The exploration of color helps me with my own path of enlightenment.

The peace of color envelops me and forms a cocoon around my inner-being. The subtle light in the distance awakens me, calms me, sustains me. Enter my world and move silently with me. Just whisper.” – Amy Fairchild
