About the work
Isca Greenfield-Sanders
American, b. 1978
Follow

Saturated with nostalgia and vibrant hues, Isca Greenfield-Sanders’ paintings emerge from an intensive, meticulous process. She finds, scans, edits, and prints vintage photographs, alters them with watercolor and pencil, then mounts details from the images onto tiles before, finally, painting over them in oils. This layering of mediums mirrors the layers of abstract and figurative meaning in her works. “I have an interest in the never-ending quality of an image,” Greenfield-Sanders says. “I think of these paintings as being traced from one medium to the next, perhaps being translated.” Many of Greenfield-Sanders’ paintings depict post-war American ideals of family and leisure, such as her idyllic seaside and backyard pool scenes. Others, such as the Korean War parachute paintings in the series “Against the Fall” (2008), reveal a more explicit skepticism about America’s fabled innocence in the 1950s.
