“My process is centered on noticing what captures my attention or delights me. I maintain a personal catalogue of shapes that reference these collected moments and I pull from this while painting. I think mostly about color and compositional issues and react to each move. Sometimes the composition becomes a landscape that refers to a childhood beach memory, sometimes it presents as a hovering UFO.” — Ashely Peifer
Ashely Peifer (b.1986) is a St. Paul, Minnesota-based artist and textile designer whose paintings and collages feature a recurring vocabulary of floating forms and vibrant colors. Drawn to the tactility and formal qualities of fabric collage, Ashely’s work is a commitment to and an expression of play. Despite the spontaneity of her arrangements, each individual element in Ashely’s work is purposefully organized, allowing each piece to function individually yet exist harmoniously within the constellation of the whole.
