From her early small-scale cartoon figures to her later enormous abstract paintings, Amy Sillman's artistic vision shines through in this beautiful volume that covers the period from 1995 to the present. Filled with drawings, paintings, 'zines, as well as stills from the artist's recent forays into animated films, the book traces the development of Sillman's work from her early use of cartoon figures and a vivacious palette, through to her exploration of the diagrammatic line, the history of abstract expressionism and a growing concern with the bodily and the erotic dimensions of paint. This book also examines the importance of drawing in Sillman's practice, as well as the intensity with which she has embraced the dichotomy between figuration and abstraction. It celebrates her raw emotion, curiosity, erotic power and humour.
