Working across disciplines in an ongoing pursuit of her own creative identity, Amy Jorgensen plays with the conceptual applications of photography and film alongside the realm of performance art.
Creating a timeless compositional space in which the viewer is transported beyond the temporal bounds of the contemporary gallery, Jorgensen’s works explore the bounds between the tensions of obscurity and exposure and of precision and saturation. Streamlined in execution and begging for the viewer’s own interpretation, Jorgensen’s works inspire.
Born in Milan, Jorgensen earned her BFA from Tufts University and the Museum of Fine Arts. Following graduation, she went on to complete her MFA at the University of California, San Diego. In addition to earning numerous grants for her work, including the Individual Artist Grant from the Utah Arts Council, Jorgensen has enjoyed the display of her work in galleries around the world. Recent exhibitions include those held at the Utah Museum of Contemporary Art, Filter Space in Chicago, and GuatePhoto Festival in Guatemala City. In addition to continuing her practice, Jorgensen also serves as curator, professor, and a member of the Board of Directors for the Utah Arts Council.
