Sandi Slone found her entry point into artmaking through the rule-breaking traditions of the Abstract Expressionists. Her work often still reflects this interest - Slone is a painter’s painter, diving into the joy of paint itself and the challenges of the canvas plane. Rejecting the corners of the traditional square or rectangular painting, Slone works often in the “tondo” or circular format in an attempt to “push the volume forward.” The brushstrokes and abstract formations convey a certain amount of sensuality and sensuousness, and the colors tend toward the super-intense, all of which insist upon the very physical existence of the paintings, and the viewer’s experience of them.

Born in Boston, and based in New York, NY since 1984, Slone received her BA in Art History from Wellesley College in 1974. A founder of the ART OMI International Arts Center, she has had solo exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Art (Boston, MA) and the Acquavella Galleries (New York, NY). She has shown her work extensively internationally, in Berlin, Paris, Lisbon, and Barcelona, as well as Beijing, Toronto, and at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, DC. This is her first time exhibiting at the Elizabeth Leach Gallery. A catalog, featuring an essay by artist and critic Stephen Maine, will accompany the exhibition.
