American painter Amy Feldman makes bold and impactful abstract paintings on a large scale. Pure in composition and powerful in subtext, her paintings embody immediacy and resonance while maintaining a sense of humor. The stark contrast between figure and ground in Feldman’s paintings are initially arresting before giving way to a viewing experience that is complicated, exploratory, and meditative. Feldman’s striped down painting language addresses, among other things, how images are perceived and transmitted in popular culture.


Recent solo exhibitions include Blackston in New York, Sorry We’re Closed in Brussels, ANNAELLEGALLERY in Stockholm, and Gregory Lind Gallery in San Francisco. Feldman’s work has been reviewed and featured in ArtForum, The New York Times, Art in America, Art Info, Manhattan Magazine, Time Out New York, BOMB Magazine, The Brooklyn Rail, Hyperallergic, The New Criterion, NY Arts Magazine, Figaro Scope, Télérama Sortir, Le Quotidien de l’Art, Omkonst, The Art Economist, Saatchi Online Magazine, The San Francisco Chronicle, Dust Magazine, Vogue Mexico, and The Huffington Post, among other publications. Feldman received a Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant in 2013 and was also nominated for The Academy of Arts and Letters Award. The Dedalus Foundation awarded Feldman the Robert Motherwell Fellowship at The MacDowell Colony in Peterborough, New Hampshire. She received a New Jersey State Council on the Arts Grant and fellowships from VCUArts and the Fountainhead Foundation, Richmond, Virginia; The Henry Street Settlement at the Abrons Art Center, New York, New York; Yaddo, Saratoga Springs, New York; The Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation, Brooklyn, New York; and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Skowhegan, Maine. Feldman was recently an artist-in-residence at Chandelier Creative, Montauk, New York and at Casa Wabi, Oaxaca, Mexico.
