Amy Chase Gulden
Amy Chase Gulden is a visual artist interested in art-making processes that are collaborative, not fully under her control, and bring her into direct contact with the living world. She has been collaborating with molecular biologist Kristin Baldwin, using the microorganism, E. coli bacteria, to generate living, growing paintings that can be replicated indefinitely or immortalized by printing onto paper. The team’s work was recently exhibited in New York City at the Serrano Contemporary gallery in a show entitled Growing Impressions, and the two are often asked to share the story of their collaboration with educators and students from across the arts and science fields at area museums and labs.
When not in the studio or lab, Gulden is the New York regional director for Visual Thinking Strategies, a research-based, learner-centered, art-viewing curriculum and teaching method that uses discussions of art to develop critical thinking, communication and visual literacy skills.
