Convertible

Convertible 2019 Color spitbite aquatint, aquatint with drypoint. Paper Size: 32” x 32” Edition of 35 Purchase/Inquire For her fifth project with the press, Isca Greenfield-Sanders continues her rich dialogue between photography and painting. Her three new prints, Convertible, Pink Mountain, and Tree Tunnel, are all landscapes depicting roads below her signature horizon line. The road is a perfect means to explore her ongoing examination of photography and its relationship to the American mythos. When we engage with themes of the road, we are led to thoughts of the road west, the human drive to move to somewhere better, the promised land, leisure, escape, the past and the future. It makes me think of Lil Nas X’s song “Old Town Road” and its record-holding time at the top of the music charts. The collective nostalgia for that path or way “home” struck ...Read more

SF Chronicle

SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE Datebook by Charles Desmaris | August 17, 2019 Isca Greenfield-Sanders: "Inherited Landscape":  There is a great chasm between paintings based on photographs that are intended as representations of the original subject, and paintings made to represent photographs.  The first is a socially accepted form of blatant lying, the latter an examination of the way we see and remember.  Isca Greenfield-Sanders, a New York artist who has shown often at Berggruen, is a master in the mold of the Bay Area's great Robert Bechtle at capturing the pathos of the world reduced to an entrapped image.  Oct. 18-Nov.21.

Drawing on her background in visual arts and mathematics, she creates her work in series, sometimes producing up to ten images from a single slide. Greenfield-Sanders’s choices often reveal the amateurish nature of her photographic ...Read more
