Gregory Lind Gallery is pleased to present Raw Graces, an exhibition of new works by Brooklyn-based abstract painter Amy Feldman. The artist's large-scale gray-black acrylic forms appear as bold, sturdy shapes that are constructed quickly, casually, and in the present tense. Despite Feldman's penchant for under-constructed or seemingly half-built figures, these reductionist works spin a compelling and complete narrative that combine bluntness and muscularity with subtlety and droll confidence.
Amy Feldman received a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design and an MFA from Rutgers University. Recent exhibitions include Dark Selects, solo exhibition, Blackston, New York, NY; Salon Zürcher, Gallerie Zürcher, Paris, France; The Academy of Arts and Letters Invitational Exhibition, The Academy of Arts and Letters, New York, NY; Decenter, Abrons Art Center, New York, NY; and Encounter, Zürcher Studios, New York, NY. Her work has been featured in The New York Times, Art in America, Time Out New York, the Brooklyn Rail, Hyperallergic, NY Arts Magazine, Le Quotidien de l’Art, Vice Magazine, The Art Economist, Saatchi Online Magazine, and theHuffington Post. She has been a visiting artist and critic at Lehman College and Wave Hill, and was an artist-in-residence and Visiting Faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University. Feldman was selected as the Robert Motherwell Fellow at The MacDowell Colony for 2011-2012. She was awarded a New Jersey State Council on the Arts Grant and has also received fellowships from VCUArts and the Fountainhead Foundation, The Henry Street Settlement at the Abrons Art Center, Yaddo, the Marie Walsh Sharpe Foundation and the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Feldman lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. This is the artist’s first exhibition with Gregory Lind.
