1 LUMP OR 2 – BOSTON ICA WELCOMES AMY SILLMAN

The Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston recently opened Amy Sillman: 1 Lump or 2 a glorious and innovative collection of paintings, portraits and other works that survey Sillman’s work and progress as an artist.  As described by the ICA,
As artists started to question painting’s role in an age of reproduction and mass media, many looked to photography. Sillman turned instead to the diagram, injecting into her lush, abstract fields of color the sort of stringent line so often used to communicate complex information. Most recently, Sillman has questioned whether painting needs paint at all, making drawings on her iPhone that she transforms into movies that bring back the neurotic figures of her early images while delving further into the current roles of abstraction, color, and the diagram.
