Amy Feldman


In her first exhibition in Stockholm, the New York-based artist Amy Feldman presents a new series of paintings. The gallery has published a catalogue, with a text by Barry Schwabsky, to accompany this exhibition.

Feldman's 'seemingly simple', all gray abstractions utilize an economy of form to construct an image. The forms, often graphic and cartoon-like, are blunt and direct, addressing both the space of the painting and the viewer's physical space. Marked by urgency and the strongest of line and form, each painting displays deliberateness and ingenuity with underlying depth and humor.

Feldman's paint is carefully mixed, and then walloped on the canvas, allowed to drip every which way. There is no erasure or regret involved in her process, and the work prides itself on achieving a balance between the brazenly rough and consciously poised. As grays bounce and pop, Feldman conjures a tradition of gray in Painting that can be at once evocative and elusive. Pairing pop iconography with the 'non-color' gray, Feldman pivots the lighthearted against the monumental. As Barry Schwabsky writes in the catalogue, "Feldman knows how to give lightness of spirit a monumental presence."
