Francisco Amaya

Born in Wheeling ,West Virginia , Amaya studied art and architecture at the University of Michigan, printmaking at West Virginia University and painting at S.U.N.Y. Buffalo. He now resides and teaches in Buffalo , N. Y. Amaya says:"I like to meditate on the patterns all around us that carry an inexplicable meaning , a feeling that starts with the eyes but ends up floating in the space inches above the head – beheld, but unknown."

These patterns appear in the intimate similarity of trees, maps, telephone lines in his paintings, indicating the web-like lattice that structures his reality.
