Amy Sillman at Capitain Petzel Gallery, BerlinJuxtapoz // Saturday, 19 Nov 2011
Capitain Petzel Gallery's diverse show exhibits large scale oil paintings, digital animations, and several hundred inkjet prints of animation stills all from New York-based artist Amy Sillman. Sillman's paintings work with the materiality of the medium and utilize a particular drawing approach that is intuitive and improvisatory at times.
Sillman works with a seemingly instinctive drawing style, emphasizing the immediacy of the mark. Her paintings take on a sense of humor as well, which can often be something missing in many large-scale oil paintings. SIllman is known to provide a variety of works for a range of prices, often selling zines, posters, and CDs alongside expensive oil paintings, allowing a larger audience to purchase and enjoy the work. In this particular show, the inkjet stills are specifically sold at the cost of production. The show is up in Berlin until December 23rd.
