Isca Greenfield-Sanders

I follow artist Kathy Leeds on Instagram and love that she posts pictures by other artists. These paintings by Isca Greenfield-Sanders, daughter of photographer-filmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders, could be snapshots from my childhood. Based on found photographs of strangers, these paintings evoke summertime memories.

  • I love all of these so much, so evocative as you said. She’s represented by a very fine gallery in San Francisco, John Berggruen and I would love to see them in person. Thanks for the mention Preston XX

  • They are so charming! From beach to pool, I think they would evoke childhood memories in everyone.

  • I remember seeing her art in Elle Decor years ago and fell in love with the colors and imagery of her paintings. She manages to capture both vintage and contemporary qualities in her work. I also enjoy Kathy Leeds art which you introduced your readers to in an earlier post. Colorful and beautiful.

  • Thank you for this glimpse back to lazy summer days! I like the simplicity of the figures and the especially the adult women. My mother actually sewed her swimsuits back in the 50’s and 60’s. She wore such appropriate swim wear (always one piece, ‘boy leg,’ straight line bust, bought the bra part in the notions department, and always a back or side zipper!). She wasn’t a ‘hot mama’ at the swimming pool and lake with us. She was a cute mother with a nice figure (obesity was rare back then), just like all the other moms back then. Paintings are charming!
