NEW YORK, NY.- Galerie Eva Presenhuber
announced the representation of American artist Amy Feldman. Feldmans first exhibition with the gallery will open in New York on September 10, 2021. Feldman is also creating a new painting for Galerie Eva Presenhubers Art Basel presentation this September.
I first saw a painting by Amy Feldman in 2015 when she was part of the exhibition 'New York Painting' at Kunstmuseum Bonn in Germany. The exhibition explored the renaissance painting was experiencing at the time through the works of 11 New York-based artists. Amys paintings spoke to me through their curious forms and quiet power, and I began to follow her work. I am thrilled that we are now working together and that we will be able to share her newest paintings with the gallery's audience in New York and Basel in just a few months. Eva Presenhuber
Amy Feldman (b. 1981) lives and works in New York, NY, US. Feldman is recognized for her iconic painting language and commitment to large-scale gray-on-gray abstractions. Feldmans investigation in the color gray highlights the significance and potential that can be found in neutralityhow something can appear neutral but is, in fact, charged with great power of expression. Feldman typically works in series, presenting distilled iterations of unique forms, which relate to how images and signs are quickly interpreted, remembered, and misremembered. Her paintings offer a vivid conversation between the physical and formal language of abstraction in their acute reference to the body and the mortal coil within the simplification of said forms.
In September, Eva Presenhuber, New York, will present a new series of works in which the artist juxtaposes mechanical marks made with silkscreen ink with passages of quickly applied impasto. The dissolution of figure and ground, along with the dissonance created between the printed mark and painted mark, plays with the authenticity of gesture and speaks to the ambiguity of the present. Feldmans new works contemplate the viewers willingness to accept illusion and illuminate the paradoxical relationship between the psychic and conceptual nature of her painting.
