A Moveable Feast, Amy Sillman

Here are some gorgeous images of Amy Sillman's show A Moveable Feast - Part XIV at Compoli Presti in Paris.

From the gallery press release 
The pieces in the exhibition unfold as a test strip in which a non-linear sequence of events, forms, possibilities, options, transparencies, re-workings and rubbings is revealed in a continuum of images. 

A selection of drawings made by hand, with paper and chalk, are first photographed, then ink-jet printed on canvas and later painted or drawn on top of with ink and gouache. The logic of collage is thus continued in a series of actions that combine one layer with another. This continues Sillman's interest in open-ended procedures in which the material contradicts itself or reveals new properties in an ongoing course of interventions. 

Presented as a sequence, the works allow the viewer the ability to see them as a comic strip, or test trip of things-before-the-things, ideas, plans, or preliminary studies. They are made with simple water-based materials or inks, which evoke their materiality as notebook pages while having a tactile, painterly surface.
