Opening reception: Friday, April 29, 6-8 PM
In the East Wing, CvsD eagerly unveils Good Gloom , the first Chicago exhibition of paintings by Amy Feldman. A major presence in New York’s vibrant new painting scene, Feldman works large scale and with a reduced palette, mostly in black, white, and grey, and she derives complexity out of modest means – singular or composite forms ring the canvases, creating tension by suggesting multiple figure/ground relationships, testing the capacity of the frame’s edge, with incidental drips creating extra action like static electricity on a rubbed balloon. Among numerous solo gallery exhibitions, Feldman chosen for New York Painting , with ten other artists, at the Kunstmuseum, Bonn (2015), with her work appearing on the cover of the catalog, and she will be part of Riot Grrrls , an upcoming show at the MCA, Chicago.
