Best Design Books: Amy Sillman: One Lump or Two

Accompanying a major museum retrospective of the acclaimed American painter, this book (published by Prestel) traces Amy Sillman’s diverse body of work that includes drawings, cartoons, paintings, and animated videos produced on an iPhone. 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, and ‘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 her exploration of the diagrammatic line, the history of Abstract Expressionism, and a growing concern with the bodily and 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 humor. This book celebrates raw emotion, curiosity, erotic power, and humor of Amy Sillman’s work.
