Press Release

Isca Greenfield-Sanders

Red Boat Beaches

September 6 - September 29, 2007

 

John Berggruen Gallery is pleased to present its newest exhibition of recent paintings by Isca Greenfield-Sanders, Red Boat Beaches . The exhibition opens Thursday, August 30th, and will continue through Saturday, September 29th.

 

For her second solo exhibition at the John Berggruen Gallery, Isca Greenfield-Sanders will unveil her newest paintings from her recent series Red Boat Beaches. Greenfield-Sanders practices are derived from a fascination with vintage anonymous slides from the 1950s-1960s. She manipulates these images in Photoshop, prints them on rice paper, and applies various paint mediums to augment the printed picture. This newest series of psintings typifies Greenfeild-Sanders ongoing practice of blurring the distinctions between photography and painting, realism and impressionism.

 

Greenfield-Sanders currently lives and works in New York, and holds a dual degree in mathematics and painting from Brown University. Her work has been included in collections such as The Este Lauder Corporation, New York, NY; The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY; The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, Texas; and The Museum Morsbroich, in Leverkusen, Germany. She has been the subject of articles in several publications including Artforum, Artnews, The New Yorker, and the New York Times. A transcribed conversation between Greenfield-Sanders and artist Chuck Close will be included in the exhibition catalogue.
