RED LETTER DAY (The Aleph), Painting 101, Sargent's Daughters, NY, 2014
"Sandi Slone’s Red Letter Day is awash with symbols, and seems more like the cave walls of Lascaux or Le Chauvet. Her paintings are an accretion of visual ideas over time. From the upper right hand corner we read a bright red aleph-like shape, but this visual key presides over a cascade of less discernable but still interpretable signs. Black circles, boxes and ladders fall away from the aleph into a rosy and grey miasma. Eros (2009) uses a similar figure ground typology, a single brushstroke with six dangling pods looms over a washy fade from light blue to yellow, like some forgotten gesture to call up a goddess." - Artcritical.com

Even though Sandi Slone has often worked with oversized brushes—an early series of abstract paintings made with large brooms established her reputation as a young painter — she long has had a predilection for intimate gestures and unexpected incidents that signal her preoccupation with visual strategies as metaphors for everything from the materiality and sensuousness of color, light and space to the current state of our fraught planet. There has always been a sense of the hand, of calligraphic gestures and shapes, that explore the language of contemporary abstraction with its wide ranging references as much as do her full-body sweeps of paint and thick transparent pours , extending the conversation around modernism and what came after .
Slone’s paintings have been widely exhibited internationally and are held in many permanent major museum and private collections including The Museum of Modern Art, NY; The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution, DC; The Portland Art Museum, OR; The Museum of Contemporary Art, Barcelona; The Katzen Art Museum, Washington, DC; The Rose Art Museum, Waltham, MA; The Alberta Museum of Art, Edmonton, Can; The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston; two Corcoran Museum Biennials, Washington DC; The DeCordova Museum, Boston; The Etherington Art Center, Queen’s University, Ontario; The International Artists Museum, Lodz, Poland; The Jersey City Museum, NJ; The New Hall Art Collection, Cambridge University, UK; The Currier Museum of Art, Manchester, NH; The Butler Institute of American Art, Ohio; The Harvard University Graduate School of Design, and in numerous other venues in the US, France, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Poland, Canada, Korea, China.
Slone’s work has been featured in publications that include The New York Times, The Boston Globe, The Washington Post, Artforum, Art In America, ARTnews, ARTnet, Flash Art, Architectural Digest, The London Guardian, Art New England, ARTS Magazine, The Hudson Review, Partisan Review, and Interview Magazine.
Sandi Slone is Professor Emerita of painting at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts / Tufts University, Boston, has taught in Harvard’s department of Visual and Environmental Studies, in the MFA program at the School of Visual Arts, NY and is a Founding Board Member of Art Omi International Artists Residency and Art Center. Slone was born in Boston and has lived and worked in Manhattan since 1984.
