Bedrock welcomes Amy Feldman in the debut creation of her elegant portfolio of seven lithographs titled “Loose Truths.” From neutral grounds to fluid and punchy figures, Amy has powerfully continued her conversation between layering and form with her fist works in the medium of lithography. Speaking to her relationship with shades of grey, Feldman further explores her signature abstract sign system, speaking to systems of writing and the transmission of information, often alluding to anthropomorphic explorations. Typical of Feldman’s hand, each resulting lithograph comes alive with personality, humor, presence of form, and stark elegance.
