Goings on About Town, Isca Greenfield-Sanders

OCTOBER 2, 2006

GALLERIES-CHELSEA

If Edward Hopper were a man of the suburbs instead of the city, he might have painted works like these. Greenfield-Sanders emulates the soft, sanded-down look of Hopper’s figures and the rigorous compositional architecture, although her vantage points are aerial rather than earthbound. Her works function like back-yard pastorals, peopled with swimmers in pools and loungers in deck chairs looking out over dark, Cheever-esque landscapes. Found photographs serve as source material for these works-a genetic influence, perhaps, since her father is photographer Timothy Greenfield-Sanders. Through Oct. 14. (Goff & Rosenthal, 537 W. 23rd st. 212-675-0461.)
