Garvey|Simon is pleased to announce the exhibition, Sandy Litchfield: Deciduous Cities, featuring new work from three recent series: Around Town, Forest/City and Rome (Eternal Cities). This is the artist’s first solo exhibition at Garvey|Simon and her first solo show in Manhattan. A full color catalog with essay by Mary M. Tinti, Ph.D. (Curator, Fitchburg Art Museum) accompanies the show.
In these recent paintings, Sandy Litchfield investigates the formal and conceptual relationship between the urban built environment, the countryside, and the forest. Her interest in these composite landscapes derives from her childhood. Litchfield, who grew up as an architect’s daughter, lived between the grit of New York City, the rolling hills of Westchester and the Adirondack Mountains. Her ease amid highly vertical spaces of trees, mountains and tall buildings is projected onto these elevated perspectives of contemporary landscape.
