b. 1992, Indianapolis, Indiana
Amy Applegate investigates subjectivity. Her paintings, often small and painted from
observation, are informed by her immediate surroundings, memories, dreams, and loose associations. These paintings frequently reference one another through repetitions and visual rhymes. Her process involves looking closely and curiously, recording what she notices, and letting one thing influence the next. Her practice considers the distinct and inherently limited nature of any particular point of view. 


Amy Applegate graduated with a BFA from Herron School of Art and Design in 2015. In 2022, Applegate was awarded notable grants, including the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation Grant and the Katherine B. Sutphin Artist Grant. The artist has exhibited at contemporary art galleries across the United States, with recent exhibitions at Edington Gallery in Indianapolis, IN, Smoke the Moon, Santa Fe, MN, and Satellite Art Fair Miami, FL. Applegate had her first solo exhibition with Massey Klein Gallery in 2022. Her work has been exhibited at cultural institutions nationally, notably at Harper College, the Indianapolis Art Center, and The Harrison Center for the Arts. The artist is based in Indianapolis, IN.
