PRESS RELEASE

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.
