About

American, b. 1995   —   Saskia Fleishman, born in 1995, graduated Rhode Island School of Design in 2017 with a B.F.A. in painting. She has been an artist in residence at Vermont Studio Center, Wassaic Project, PADA Studios, ChaNorth and Trestle Studios, and a curator in residence at Otis College of Art and Design. Saskia’s work has been exhibited in a recent solo exhibition at Silo 6776 in New Hope, PA, and in group exhibitions across the United States, and in Rome and Portugal. Fleishman is based in Philadelphia, PA. Fleishmans' work is generated from landscape photographs taken on recent trips and images sourced from her families collection taken around the tidewater Chesapeake Bay area. These photographs are then recomposed as geometric abstractions or color studies derived from Joseph Albers', ”The Interaction Of Color” by tilting the image, flipping the horizon line, or cutting out a part of the landscape. These gestures serve to demonstrate the malleability and impermanence of memory over time and in space. The paintings pair flat and smooth masked airbrushed gradients with textural materials such as sand, clay, burlap, and chiffon to create an interpretation of place and moment with material. Her work forms a space to contemplate points in time, perception, and our relationship to memories embedded in our landscapes.
