i recently saw amy sacksteder's work in the spetember/october issue of new american paintings. i texted her name to my email address, googled her, found her website and contacted her as soon as i got home. the above painting entitled in all sincerity really caught my eye, there's a patience and frenetic energy that co-exists calmly. it's clear why amy was accepted into the prestigous publication. she has some solo shows coming up, check out her site for more information and to see older work, new work and work in progress.
in all sincerity, detail.
