Painting in Parallel

Painting in Parallel by DANIEL KEHLMANN [Published in 2020 to accompany the two-person exhibition by Sebastian Blanck & Isca Greenfield-Sanders at Wetterling Gallery in Stockholm, Sweden.]I was lucky to discover the work of Isca and Sebastian simultaneously. It struck me immediately how much they talk to each other in their work, one centering nature and the other human beings. When I look at the paintings of Isca Greenfield-Sanders I often see beautiful, expansive landscapes, sometimes inhabited by tiny human silhouettes.

It allows me to be very open with the paint, and somewhat minimal, so I can think of it almost as an abstraction, but populate it with figures, and sleds ...Read more


Sebastian Blanck Paints a Cobalt Sky

Dan’s Papers Cover Artist Sebastian Blanck Paints a ‘Cobalt Sky’ January 11, 2020 “Being an artist was never a choice for me,” says this week’s cover artist, Sebastian Blanck. “I can’t remember a time in my life when I wasn’t making things.” Having been exposed to art at a young age by his mother, Blanck has been creating his entire life. What was the inspiration for this piece? I am inspired by daily life and my work is loosely a journal. I show the quiet moments in life. Images that I think are beautiful and that I want to share with the world. This painting, “Cobalt Sky,” is based on a day I spent sledding with my two sons in the Hudson River Valley. It is one of the larger paintings in an ongoing series of snow scenes. It was part of a show I had in Aspen, Colorado a ...Read more
