In thinking about this new body of work Amy Sillman has said;

My new work is a group of paintings that extend, unfold and lay bare the vocabulary of my imagery. The images arise from the simplicity of the everyday and the intensities of a psychosexual imaginary, and are rendered in paintings that run a gamut from the depths and intensities of heavily-layered painterly surfaces all the way to the starkness of enormous drawings on bare canvas. The language of these paintings is an intentionally awkward and anxious one, drawn from the process of free association, a liminal and interwoven space of interior and exterior experience. The work employs an emotional, expressive language involving issues of affect, affection, and attachment balanced against skepticism – and as always, a rigorously formal interest in painterly concerns, particulary that of color and its functions both formally and psychologically.
