Cliff 1, 2005 by Amy Sillman

Painting is a physical thinking process to continue an interior dialogue,” according to Amy Sillman, “a way to engage in a kind of internal discourse, or sub-linguistic mumbling…”. Amy Sillman’s canvases offer a glimpse of the subconscious world. Strangely, her abstraction is intertwined in thought and emotion, full of emotional resonance. “In Cliff 1, a flock of wild ducks is tangled by a daisy and a bright David Pagel, striped curtains and pastel pink and pale blue paintings that begin to dissolve A pleasant start interval. Her painting techniques reflect the fusion of subconscious minds: rocks rendered with chalk sloping rocks, vertical dark orange diagonal sunsets, with cartoon silly flowers and birds. Silman’s paintings have intuitive intuition, trying to purposefully pull apart the fragmented emotions, embarrassment, and awkward situations, and convey a feeling of experimentation and discovery in a gesture of contemplation.
