A unique fusion of photography and painting, Isca Greenfield-Sanders’ work creates a rich dialogue between abstraction and figuration, mechanical reproduction and handcraft, and narration and formalist visuality. Appropriating images from anonymous family estates, Greenfield-Sanders fashions meditative narratives exploring themes of nostalgia, memory and collective ideals. Her use of digital media, combined with the traditional craft of oil painting, creates a set of paradoxes mirroring contemporary lives and longings in an increasingly mechanized world.
Born in 1978, New York, NY, Greenfield-Sanders received BA degrees from Brown University in Visual Arts and Mathematics. In 2001, she was the Visiting Artist at the American Academy of Rome and has since received numerous solo exhibitions throughout Europe and the United States.

Guggenheim Museum, New York, Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen, Germany, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Texas, and The Estee Lauder Corporation, New York, NY.
