About Sidnea D'Amico
Sidnea D’Amico’s work imbues movement, line, and color. Inspired by both the energy of a bustling city environment and the more quiet moments of domesticity. In her Still Life Series you can see these reflected in the suggestion of cityscapes and household objects. D’Amico plays and manipulates these shapes by layering them within layers of paint. She is often scratching and using transparency on the surface to quietly reveal their existence or simply to give them a recognizable presence.

D’Amico’s works have been included in Art Fairs Miami, San Francisco and Greece and in many group exhibitions around California, such as: MOMA Artist Gallery, Mission Cultural Center in San Francisco and Institute of Contemporary Art in San Jose and in shows in Italy, Dubai, Greece, Poland, Argentina and Serbia. Her works are placed in an extensive number of private and public collections around US.
