New York artist Isca Greenfield-Sanders discussed her exhibit Light Leaks, her first solo museum show and a fascinating collision of the processes of photography and paintings, all on the same page. She described how each painting actually incorporates a tiled grid of 7 X 7-inch photographic prints on rice paper, which are then painted over with watercolor and colored pencil. On top of that base, she overlays clear acrylic, on top of which she paints in oils. The images are lifted from vintage slides of soccer games and the like, and she overtly emphasizes their photographic flaws. Who knew? Along with Light Leaks, a show by Robert Gober, Slides of a Changing Painting, also opened.
KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
