    The shape of obsession

    Amelia Hankin draws in pencil on silkscreen prints. The drawing "Seguine Series" looks like an immense colony of bubbles. Hankin cleverly angles the spheres to shape the space they inhabit, deepening in the center. You can see the silkscreen backing clearly in "Forgive" — the paper is covered with black, blotted ink, over which Hankin has drawn expanding patterns of balls, each surrounded by champagne bubble-size silver circles. These are frothy yet relentless, walking a surprising edge between biomorphic and decorative.
    - Cate McQuaid, writing in the Boston Globe, 2010


    ‘What in the World?’ at the Penn Museum, Print Invitational at Little Berlin, ‘Dead Flowers’ at Vox Populi

    Amelia Hankin used woodcut to create multi-color prints (variations of grey) of extreme subtlety. They gave the impression of landscapes, despite the fact that none of the forms was identifiable. She studied in Japan, and the sensibility comes through.
    - Andrea Kirsh, writing in The Art Blog 2010


    From dryer fuzz to flowers to fold-out books

    Indeed, there’s nothing tentative at all about the work of two of the show’s artists: Amelia Hankin, a RISD-trained printmaker. Hankin’s prints, which feature cell-like patterns rendered in sooty blacks and grays, are visually striking and technically assured. That’s especially true of works such as Black as Night and Infectious, where the contrast between light and dark creates a 3-D effect.
    - Bill Van Siclen, writing in The Providence Journal 2009


    Under construction

    Amelia Hankin of Washington, DC, dazzles with colored pencil drawings and silkscreen prints of bubbly cellular patterns. They have an op-art, psychedelic fizz. Chris Kyle of Lexington, Massachusetts, makes brightly-colored ceramic blobs and lumps decorated with lines, bumps, and spiny things. They resemble charming sea urchins.
    - Greg Cook, writing in The Providence Phoenix 2009
