Amy Feldman’s large scale gray-on-gray abstractions are recognized for their bold display of form, isolation and distillation of image, and for their reductive yet impactful language. Oscillating between figure and ground, her seemingly simple compositions undermine the logic of their own stability, and pivot immediacy with resonance. The suspension between surface, iconography, and geometry highlights the significance of her selected imagery. Contemporary signs, symbols, digital ideograms, and figures emerge from gray drips and open strokes. Coming in and out of legibility, the forms push and pull, move and undulate, alluding to the instability of images and signs, and their increasingly unstable role in contemporary culture.
Feldman received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Rhode Island School of Design and Master of Fine Arts from Rutgers University (2003, 2008). She has exhibited at James Cohan Gallery, New York; Sorry We’re Closed, Brussels, Belgium; ANNAELLE Gallery, Stockholm, Sweden; Museo Britanico Americano, Mexico City; Musée d’art Moderne, Saint-Etienne, France; New Britain Museum of American Art, CT; The American Academy of Arts and Letters, New York, NY; and Bronx River Arts Center, New York, NY. She is the recipient of numerous awards, residencies, and grants including the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant (2013) and VCUarts Fountainhead Fellowship in Painting (2008-09). She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
