Art Imitates Life

While I was sitting on the beach in Southampton this weekend, I was struck by how much the scene and my photos reminded me of the art of Isca Greenfield-Sanders, especially Cloud Beach, mixed media watercolor with colored pencil, from 2005.

Isca is the daughter of famed photographer Timothy Greefield-Sanders but she sticks to painting and not photography, although her art is derived from photography, namely a box of vintage photographs she found.

On her website, there is a very interesting conversation between the artist and Chuck Close where she describes her study, inspiration, process and theory of art.
