Amy Sillman is favorite
I see her paintings as impulsive, child-like, sort-of-abstract, sublime, sharp, honest, exploding with color, atmospheric, rhythmic, complex, violent, unsettling and beautiful.
A balance of disturbance and intrigue is a quality I seek in my own work, and I feel this when I look at her paintings. Also, I like her merging of complex abstraction with childish cartooning.
She did one of the "Ramp Projects" at the ICA back in Dec. 2004. Some of you may have seen it. I didn't. But some photos can be seen here.
