Isca Greenfield-Sanders blends the elements of time through paint, manipulating memory, vision, and historical art practices. Her large and small-scale pieces expose a multi-layered process based in photography and influenced by contemporary painting. Beginning with found film photographs from the 1950-60s, she implements a system of scanning, gridding and painting to reference quintessential American life experiences. By deconstructing and reimagining old slides, Greenfield-Sanders implies a collective memory. As color bleeds into faceless figures, her paintings evoke an air of nostalgia, operating as dream-like snapshot of time passed. Greenfield-Sanders was born in New York City in 1978, and currently lives and works there. She graduated from Brown University with a double major in Fine Arts and Mathematics (2000). Her work is held in major collections, including Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, NY; Brooklyn Museum, NY; The Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Museum of Fine Arts Houston, TX; and the Israel Museum, Jerusalem.
