David M. Roth reviews the exhibition Amy Feldman: Raw Graces at Gregory Lind Gallery, San Francisco, on view through April 20, 2013.

Roth writes that Feldman's works "are the product of joyful, intensely physical, whole-body gestures — not of the old-school variety now shunned by younger painters – but those of a certain unaligned faction of abstract painters untainted by rigid ideas about how pictures are supposed to be made. So instead of swinging for the fences, Feldman pursues more mundane impulses. Her paintings start from corner-of-the eye glimpses of studio detritus or from visions of the blight outside her window, but wind up far removed."
