Amy Sillman

Painting

Amy Sillman (*1956 in Detroit/USA) works and lives in New York and is a professor at Städelschule since spring 2015. She has lived in New York City since 1975, where she first studied Japanese language, before turning to painting. Sillman foregrounds the materiality of painting and its formal, psychological, and conceptual dimensions. She constructs her work in a physical way — through gesture, color, and drawing-based procedures — imbuing it with questions of feminism, performativity, and humor. Her work is an ongoing negotiation between the improvisatory and the structural aspects of thinking itself, with painting posited as a language in which to express thinking in a formal and affective method. She received an MFA from Bard College in 1995, and has shown regularly since then, including such venues as The Whitney Museum, MoMA, and The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
