Memoryweave, new work by Susan Greenstein at 440 Gallery

May 25, 2015 – 10:01 am | Comments Off

Brooklyn, NY – Memoryweave, Susan Greenstein’s third solo show at 440 Gallery, represents a dramatic departure from her earlier pastel and watercolor cityscapes. These vibrant monotypes derive from an early fascination with patterns.

Susan Greenstein

Greenstein’s childhood home was filled with vivid patterns – including Moroccan djellabahs, Egyptian stamped metalwork, Indonesian batiks, and Guatemalan textiles – collected by her parents. This imagery has influenced the artist throughout her career and offered a rich source of ideas and endless possibilities for her recent foray into printmaking.

Greenstein’s process is reductive. It involves inking up a plate and then removing ink to expose the white of the page or the color from an earlier layer. Greenstein also uses Chine-collé in her work, the addition of collaged paper allowing fields of color to breathe through the patterns.

“One of the most interesting aspects of focusing on pattern is its meditative quality. As a pattern repeats itself, it changes slightly and steadily, revealing the artist’s hand. Sometimes you can almost feel the artist breathing in and breathing out in the subtle variations.”

Greenstein studied painting and drawing at Pratt Institute. For a decade she worked as an illustrator for magazines and children’s books. She has been teaching art for many years and she greatly enjoys working with young children. She feels that their enthusiasm helps her to stay focused on what has always been exciting about art-making for her. Greenstein enjoys painting and drawing on-site around New York, but is currently preoccupied with her newest passion – printmaking.
