Amy Kreiger

Washington, DC

The subjects of Amy Kreiger's portraits or "Virtual Identities," as she refers to them hover somewhere between the real and the constructed. The series began in cyberspace with a posting on requesting photographs from other myspace members that the subjects believed accurately expressed their personalities through clothing, accessories and props. Fascinated by the idea of impression management, Kreiger adheres to the assumption that physiognomy plays a crucial role in revealing a subjects true character.

Kreiger received her MFA in Studio Arts from The American University, Washington, DC and BFA in Painting from Youngstown State University, Youngstown, OH. She has shown at PAC Gallery, South Euclid, OH; Bliss Hall Gallery, Youngstown, OH; Classroom 102 Gallery, Washington, DC; Rotunda Gallery, Washington, DC; and SMARTS Center, Youngstown, OH, among others. Kreiger is currently an Adjunct Professorial Lecturer in the Department of Art at American University.
