Isca Greenfield-Sanders: Light Leaks

 

OCTOBER 15, 2010–JANUARY 16, 2011

Isca Greenfield-Sanders: Light Leaks featured new paintings by New York-based artist Isca Greenfield-Sanders. Greenfield-Sanders creates paintings based on found photographs from the 1960s, deliberately choosing flawed images as source material and preserving these flaws in the final works. In her Light Leaks series, the color banding, overexposure, and light leaks found in 35mm film photography served as inspiration for the artist. In some works, she manufactured these blemishes herself. Greenfield-Sanders’ works reveal the contours between painting and photography, pushing them into an ambiguous realm between the two.

MCA Denver presented Isca Greenfield-Sanders’ first solo museum exhibition. Greenfield-Sanders was born in 1978 in New York City. She has been a visiting artist at the American Academy in Rome and her work has been shown at the Brooklyn Museum and the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas. She lives and works in New York.

 

Isca Greenfield-Sanders: Light Leaks was presented in the David & Laura Merage Foundation Gallery from October 15, 2010 through January 16, 2011. The opening celebration was held Friday, October 15. A catalog with an essay by curator Nora Burnett Abrams accompanied the exhibition.
