Indian Summer 2018: Artist Talk Amy Sillman
Amy Sillman (b.1955, Detroit, USA), lives in New York
American artist Amy Sillman began painting in the mid-1970s. Her colorful works mine the edges of abstraction, meshing patches of color with a scaffolding of lines, constantly shifting the degree to which a work is structured by the logic of either drawing or painting. Her layered works register the discomfort, incoherence, and absurdity that can characterize the painterly experience—and experience in general. Recent solo exhibitions were held at The Drawing Center (New York, 2017), Albright-Knox Gallery (Buffalo, 2017), Portikus (Frankfurt, 2016), Kunsthaus Bregenz (2015), ICA (Boston, 2013) and Aspen Art Museum (2014). Amy Sillman is represented by Gladstone Gallery (New York/Brussels), Capitain Petzel Gallery (Berlin) and Sikkema Jenkins & Co (New York).
