Amy Sillman

In 2009, Amy Sillman announced a formal "break-up" from Abstraction on Bomblog, citing that she briefly considered Representation and then decided that she'd be better off "playing the field." This statement demonstrates Sillman's quirky attitude and her satirical parodies of the haute art world. A talented painter, Sillman has continually redefined her artistic career, and after a trip to Berlin, she began designing a humorous, independent 'zine on the art world, which she shows in addition to her Abstract Expressionist paintings.

Sillman has been the focus of solo exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, The Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington D.C., the Tang Teaching Museum at Skidmore College, and the Blaffer Gallery at The Art Museum of the University of Houston.
