ISCA GREENFIELD-SANDERS

Sky of Blue, Sea of Green

September 15 – October 29, 2005

 

John Berggruen Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent paintings by Isca Greenfield-Sanders. This exhibition opens Thursday, September 15th, and will run through Saturday, October 29th.

 

In her first solo exhibition at John Berggruen Gallery, Isca Greenfield-Sanders unveils several large-scale oil paintings adapted from anonymous 1950s – 1960s vintage slides of family beach vacations. Also included is a selection of smaller scale watercolor studies and oils.

 

Isca Greenfield-Sanders lives and works in Manhattan, New York. For several years, she has been fascinated with the study of vintage slides that she purchased at a yard sale. She manipulates these slides in Photoshop, then prints them on rice paper, and applies a mixed media, including watercolor and oil paint to the printed surface. As a dual major at Brown University in mathematics and painting, Isca combined her background in both art and technology to refine her innovative technique and unique style.

 

Ms. Greenfield-Sanders' work is included in many private and public collections including The Guggenheim Museum in New York. She has been the subject of feature articles in several magazines including Elle, Departures and The Oprah Magazine.
