For Amsted, the abstract form allows for its own interpretation, evoking undulatory elements from the organic or marine world. Just as in an environment where climatic conditions define a biotope, the artist creates her works according to the place, the sunlight, the humidity and her work surface, for a real interaction of her pieces with their environment. In this way, she creates her own biocenosis, i.e. a community corresponding to all living beings, both animal and vegetable.
For Amsted, making, undoing, redoing, leaving an ephemeral trace, weaving a thread between what remains and what evaporates is the order of cyclical movement. A graphic work but also a living one: the artist is one with the medium in the process of creation and seems to unwittingly create an ephemeral dance.
