Amy Sillman
American, b. 1955
Follow

In her relentless dedication to the exploration of non-figurative painting, Amy Sillman has aligned herself closely with such canonical modernists as Lee Krasner, Jackson Pollock, and Joan Mitchell. Working in gestural and abstract style, Sillman describes her art as the result of a “physical thinking process” and an extension of her inner dialogue. Her compositions often feature broad swathes of color contrasted against sharp linear elements, the latter both defining space and lending her pictures a bold, expressive character. She applies paint in varying consistencies and textures to create a multi-faceted painted surface, yielding an impasto comparable to that of Willem de Kooning and Arshile Gorky. Sillman also creates prints and works on paper and occasionally experiments with representation, drawing figures into sparse color fields.
