Isca Greenfield-Sanders Studio, 2017, New York, NY

Isca Greenfield-Sanders is a mixed media landscape painter known for her oil paintings and watercolors, based on found photography. Beginning with vintage slides, Greenfield-Sanders breaks down photographic images, and rebuilds them as her own. Putting the image through various incarnations, she grids and paints small fragments, reconstituting the “details” to a whole in a manner similar to memory’s construction. The vague familiarity of her anonymous landscapes re-enforces her exploration of remembrance as manifested through a complex working method.

Isca Greenfield-Sanders was born in New York City’s East Village, where she currently lives and works. She graduated from Brown University with honors, completing a double major in Fine Arts and Mathematics.

Her work is included in the permanent collections of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York; Brooklyn Museum, New York; Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Houston; The Victoria and Albert Museum, London; and the Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco, San Francisco, among others
