In Counter Ground, her third exhibition with the gallery, Amy Feldman advances a distinct painting language, mining the potential of gray and it's doubled significance as both a neutral and non-neutral force. Within her abstract sign system, a clear allusion to the body and to Feldman's position as a female painter persists in the work. Feldman chose to construct the works on view using acrylic, spray paint and silkscreen ink. The artist scanned canvas fabric, enlarged the weave in Photoshop and reproduced it back onto a gray primed canvas, before applying gestural marks to the surface. By reassigning the canvas material as image, Feldman highlights the paradoxical relationship between the physical and formal, psychic and conceptual.
