Now's the Time

Amy Sillman/ Cliff 1/ 2005

Click on Post Title for link to a somewhat wistful but nevertheless great article by painter Amy Sillman in the new Summer 2011 edition of Artforum. It seems there's more in the air just now to do with AbEx, than with my previous reflections in Post May 18th that it was 80s painting that seemed to be resurfacing (although previous Posts April 12th and 13th, and August 18th had a bit to do with AbEx affairs.) There again, the legacy of the 'expressive gesture' in painting is certainly around a lot just now- maybe it's more a conjoining of AbEx and 80's Bad Painting that's in our time just now.
