Shifting between figuration and abstraction, comedy and doubt, order and mess, Amy Sillman’s painting has greatly influenced generations of American artists

New York–based Amy Sillman (born 1955) is one of the most beloved and quietly influential contemporary American artists. The ALL-OVER provides a comprehensive overview of her most recent bodies of work, including painting and serially exhibited large-scale abstractions, as well as diagrams, drawings, animations and sculpture.

The title of the book, and the exhibition it accompanies at Frankfurt's Portikus, refers to a concept often used to describe abstract painting (the classic instance of which is the work of Jackson Pollock). Much of Sillman’s oeuvre can be categorized as such, although her abstractions often suggest recognizable forms and figures. In the 24-canvas series Panorama, motifs seem to run continuously around the walls of the exhibition space, but in fact are repeated prints of the artist’s drawings with painterly interventions. The materiality is lost through the superimposition of print and oil paint; what remains is pure color and gesture. Also present here are stills from an animation developed by Sillman to be exhibited alongside Panorama and an insert made especially for the book by the artist. Alongside essays by Manuela Ammer, Yve-Alain Bois and Sillman herself. The book includes a conversation with the artist by Fabian Schöneich.

"I think painting is my sexual preference." Amy Sillman: The ALL-OVER

"I think painting is my sexual preference." Amy Sillman: The ALL-OVER

Amy Sillman’s 2011 oil painting “Black Doorway” is reproduced from The ALL-OVER, the beautiful new monograph from Dancing Foxes and Portikus. “I started painting seriously after studying Japanese language, literature, and writing for a year in college,” Sillman says in conversation with interviewer Fabian Schöneich. “But, once I got there: oh, painting! Painting has taught me everything I know on this earth! Sensuality, depth, surface, changes, the unknown, the hard-to-understand, the mysterious, the high, the low, the poetic, the intellectual, the dumb, the immediate. Oil painting specifically because I can change it endlessly; I don’t like the plasticky quality of acrylic paint. But that’s just a material choice. Painting is like a love affair. I think painting is my sexual preference.” continue to blog

"Just having a body is a daily comedy." Amy Sillman: The ALL-OVER

"Just having a body is a daily comedy." Amy Sillman: The ALL-OVER

In Amy Sillman’s 2015 text, “Shit Happens: Notes on Awkwardness,” the artist writes, “We are trying to surprise ourselves, and that is hard to do. I think it is a kind of metabolism that drives me to change and change and change my forms, searching rather earnestly for something I don’t quite know already, a kind of questioning machine, endlessly discontent. I would say that form is the shape of my discontent, and that what interests me is how form can match that feeling or condition—of funny, homely, lonely, ill-fitting, strange, clumsy things that feel right. In other words, a form that tries to find itself outside of what is already OK. Awkwardness is the name I would give this quality, this thing that is both familiar and unfamiliar.” Featured excerpt and this image from the Some Pink Drawings series (2015-16) are reproduced from Amy Sillman: The ALL-OVER, new from Dancing Foxes/Portikus. continue to blog
