"Art is all about perception."Amy Dyson
Amy Dyson appreciates minimalism in art. Her single brushstroke paintings and simplicity of sculptural form suggest a minimalist aesthetic.
Dyson has a preference for contemplative art, is drawn to open space, loves miksang moments and admires wabi-sabi for the expression of imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete beauty.
Dyson's every day art expression arises within single brushstroke and Ensō paintings, of which are part of her daily practice in the studio. Guests are welcome to visit One Zen Place and experience the reflective beauty of single brushstroke paintings and Ensō.
"There are three kinds of people.
Those who see.
Those who see when they are shown.
Those that do not see."Leonardo do Vinci
"Lascaux is at the heart of all my research." —Amy Dyson
The prehistoric cave of Lascaux (c.17,000 B.C.E.) has been significant within Amy Dyson's research as an Upper Paleolithic art historian. A noteworthy painting of a human in the cave of Lascaux led to Dyson's exploration of consciousness with respect to mankind's perception of art. Dyson found art interconnection within all of the cultures she studied and is currently elucidating her discoveries in visual and literary form.
Significant discoveries Dyson made within the cave of Lascaux became the impetus for further research studies. Dyson led field expeditions for over 25 years in remote destinations as she studied perceptions of art in cultures worldwide.

"proposito ante lucrum"
(purpose before profit)Amy Dyson
Amy Dyson's ideology:
"proposito ante lucrum" (purpose before profit)
Amy Dyson's present focus is the State of the Arts in America. Dyson founded a platform that offers opportunity for recognition to all American Artists. A contemporary non-profit arts organization assists American Artists with professional presentation to a global audience. Equality, opportunity, and transparency are the cornerstones of this art platform.
Amy Dyson's vision is embodied in the organization's theme, "United by Freedom of Expression" —a common denominator for American Artists. Because American Artists are graced with the opportunity to freely express themselves, Dyson believes that American art represents the ideal of freedom and therefore demonstrates to the world the heights of human creation when there are no artistic limitations.
