Shift: Amy Pleasant
Pleasant’s artwork draws on two decades spent in classrooms in Los Angeles, Denver, Honolulu, and Shoreline, WA. Observing that “an important generational shift seems to have taken place in this country,” Pleasant offers a series of portraits of this awakening in progress. The bright colors and sherbet palette and the integration of abstracted shapes within the figures of the students reflects the innocence of the age and hopefulness for the future.
Pleasant was a bilingual teacher for the Los Angeles Unified School District and Denver Public Schools. She taught in the gifted and talented program at Assets School in Honolulu and taught elementary and middle school for the Shoreline School District in Shoreline, WA. She attended the Art Institute of Seattle and the Gage Academy of Art in Seattle, studying under Mark Kang O'Higgins in the Drawing and Painting Atelier. She has exhibited in Seattle, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Amsterdam and was one of 12 artists featured in 2014 by the Woman's Caucus of Art.
