Amy Feldman (born 1981) is an American abstract painter.


Amy Feldman received a BFA in painting from the Rhode Island School of Design in Providence, Rhode Island in 2003. Her honors concentration was in art history, theory, and criticism. She then attended Rutgers University in New Brunswick, New Jersey where she received an MFA in Painting in 2008. She subsequently attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture for a nine-week residency in 2009.


Amy Feldman's work has been shown in galleries and museums since 2008. Her work is planned, but spontaneously painted with loosely geometric, graphic gestures in whites to dark grays on various whites to gray grounds.[1] The stark contrast between figure and ground in Feldman’s paintings is initially arresting, then subsequently complicated, exploratory, and meditative. Feldman’s bold, impactful, and large scale abstract paintings are often anthropomorphic and darkly humorous with psychologically charged imagery.[2][3] Her stripped down abstract sign system addresses, among other things, asymmetry and the perception and transmission of information. Feldman's artistic influences range from Cubism to the works of Jean Arp, Ellsworth Kelly, Shirley Jaffe, and Mary Heilmann.[4]

Feldman is represented by ANNAELLE Gallery in Stockholm, Blain|Southern in Berlin and London, Brand New Gallery in Milan, James Cohan Gallery in New York, and Ratio 3 in San Francisco.

Feldman's work is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago.[5] She lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.
