On the opening of the gallery week-end on May 1, 2009, we are happy to present the second solo exhibition of New York based painter Amy Sillman at carlier | gebauer. Sillman's work was on view in a solo show at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington DC in 2008 and was included in the 2008 New Orleans Biennial. Amy Sillman was recently featured in Artforum as one of the most interesting painters currently working in America.

Sillman produces drawings and paintings, which deal with negotiations between corporeality and thought. Here, color and line are expanded into forms which propose a diagrammatic territory of symbols and figures in a psychologically-modelled existence. Sillman's work is an introduction into a world of part objects, puns and lapses, which make for beautiful and almost clownish canvasses and ambiguous and yet formal drawings, which seem to detect wit in subjects and their formations. Sillman herself describes her approach as „realistic to the world even if it is abstract". This amounts to an art that is psychologically as well as formally intense, taking up from the memory of Abstract Expressionism but from a female, strange, anti-heroic and corporeal position. At carlier | gebauer, Sillman will show a combination of drawings and paintings, portraits, preliminaries and canvasses.
