Amy Nathan (b.1973, Madison, Wisconsin) is an artist based in Berkeley, California. Nathan’s work begins with the act of applying pressure to images and language to crack them open, make them tactile, and distend them into an expanded space. This inquiry is the starting point for paintings and sculptures that lean into the push-and-pull between interior voice and external appearance, and the tension between representation and abstraction. Her work has recently been exhibited at Art Toronto, Art Market San Francisco, the Seattle Art Fair, the Headlands Center for the Arts, Traywick Contemporary, and with the International Sculpture Center at the Pyramid Hill Museum. Nathan was a 2018-2019 Graduate Fellow at the Headlands Center for the Arts. She received her MFA from Mills College in 2018, and she is a co-director of Royal NoneSuch Gallery in Oakland, California. Her work has appeared in the San Francisco Chronicle, New American Paintings and Sculpture Magazine. Glyph Slipper is her first solo exhibition with CULT Aimee Friberg Exhibitions.
