Artist Statement / Bio

As a sculptor, Amie Sell creates objects and installations that challenge us to reconcile the interconnections of our physical and internal worlds.

She/they use art to reveal the relationships and interconnections between urban society, natural environments, cultural constructs, manufactured consumerism, and our evolving human condition.

As a craftsperson, she utilizes patience gained from years of working on tedious, temporary art into to a newly evolving love for ceramics. She hand builds sculptures that incorporate human, flora, and fauna forms out of clay, while growing a deep technical love for plaster mold-making and slip casting ceramic objects. Most notably she has created a neti pot design prototype that will be brought to market under a new small, craft and wellness focused business in 2022.  

Amie recently moved to Cleveland, Ohio and makes ceramic work at Brick Ceramic & Design. She previously practiced art in Chicago, IL, for 17 years, where she was a member of AnySquared Projects, the Chicago Art Department and studied at Lill Street Art Center. She is a graduate of the University of WI-Green Bay in 2002 with a degree in Art & Museum/Gallery Studies and minor in Business.

Artist residencies include: Chicago Art Department (2010 -12), Grace Church Logan Square, Chicago (2014), The Ketchikan Arts & Humanities Council, Alaska (2018),  CORE at Chicago Art Department (2018-19), WildAcres Retreat (2022)
