About the Item

Deep Runners, Hand signed, dated,and numbered from limited edition. This is from a show at Sidney Janis Gallery and is from the estate of Joan Sonnabend. Eve Sonneman (born in Chicago on 1946) is an American photographer and artist. She did a series of similar sequences in color and black and white and for diptychs. She was included in the show EYE OF THE BEHOLDER Photographs from the Avon Collection The exhibition addressed the diverse and changing concepts of beauty as expressed by women through photography. It included such masters of the form as Berenice Abbott, Marina Abramovic, Ellen Carey, Lotte Jacobi, Barbara Kasten, Sally Mann, Sheila Metzner, Cindy Sherman, Sandy Skoglund, Deborah Turbeville, and Carrie Mae Weems to name a few. Since the start of her career in the Young Photographers exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in 1971, Eve Sonneman has secured a unique position for herself in the world of contemporary art. Internationally renowned as a photographer, she has participated in the 1977 Documenta and in the biennales of Venice, Paris, Strasbourg, and Australia, has published five books, and has been the subject of 77 solo exhibitions. David Shapiro, "She is a painterly photographer [who] reminds us that photography, as with Man Ray and Rodchenko, must never be denigrated as mere materiality." In addition to her career in photography, Sonneman works in paint, making large abstractions, painting watercolors and objects. Her distinctive, highly personal form of pointillism has been acutely characterized by the critic Klaus Kertess as "teeming with tiny, obsessively made, evanescent rings congealing into a delicate and fugitive, floreate dew."

    By Jeffrey Rothstein
    Located in Surfside, FL
    FLORA & FAUNA SERIES, c.1998, Fuji crystal archive paper. Unsigned. Photographer Jeffrey Rothstein focuses on different elements within Nature for his subject matter, ranging from flowers and plants to desert sands as well as the ocean and stars. Taking these varied images he distorts them through a series of photographic cross processes to create surreal otherworldly effects transforming the real into unreal visions that are extremely vivid, colorful and abstracted. “Jeffrey’s powerful body of work demonstrates the vast beauty of his compositions and his eye for rich color and sensual forms. He has created a thematic architecture with his work, a way of thinking about photography that is perfectly of the moment, alive to its unique technology; film with the use of digital printing and the conceptual possibilities of painterly abstraction.” Jerome Liebling, Founder of the photography program and professor emeritus of Hampshire College. Jeffrey studied photography under the post war New York School photographers, Jerry Liebling and Elaine Mays...
