Synopsis: The 63 paintings collected in Facing the Future were created from 2007 through 2010. At that time, I resided in Bronx, NY, not far from the Bronx Zoo. A few notes and questions on these paintings can provide background on method and art sensibility and values. First, these are painterly works and making them posed a challenge and felt good. I respond with more concern for aesthetic matters than theoretical art ones. Many of the paintings are in a large format, 60" h x 48" w, in order to capture the frantic energy and all-over activity in the works. Some have been exhibited in small venues in New York City and appeared in art publications. This book surveys a very important period in the collected work of the artist.
About the Author: Ivan Greenberg was born in Ithaca, NY, and grew up in Manhattan in the shadow of Soho -- then a thriving art district. He paints faces and heads in a bold and colorful expressionistic style. The sixty-three works featured in Facing the Future were created over a four-year period from 2007 to 2010. These paintings do not whisper in your ear. They are engaged in struggle in a thick, painterly environment.
