Catalogue Note

American artist Amy Sillman once described her painting process as a physical continuation of her inner dialogue. As such, Sillman’s paintings are thoughtfully gestural, witty, and often times humorous. Sillman’s strong sense for composition, color, and line continuously produce work with a bold personality and sense of space.
