Works on Paper
By (author) Wayne Koestenbaum
Amy Sillman by Wayne Koestenbaum
Book DescriptionWorks on Paper marks the first major publication of the work of noted New York painter Amy Sillman, whose rapidly growing reputation and increasingly recognized influence on other artists make its timing ideal. Her paintings and drawings are at once narrative and decorative, filled with quirky figures and diminutive, patterned elements. Her works on paper, which she considers particularly central to her art-making practice and her wider portfolio, are often made up of multiple components. They create the feeling of an extended and meandering sequence of events, and have been described as reminiscent of both film loops and long letters to her viewers. Works on Paper consists of four major series of Sillman's drawings, all recent and documented by brilliant full-color photographs. It also includes an essay by acclaimed writer Wayne Koestenbaum, who has long been celebrated for both his poetry and prose, and who has become one of our most innovative and influential writers on contemporary art and culture. His lavish, seductive and humorous writing style is the perfect complement to Sillman's lyrical works. This book is a delightful introduction to a rising star.
