Eliot Greenwald generates the same image repeatedly to, in his own words, “detail nuanced changes within the relationship between a vessel and an environment.” The self-taught artist begins his process by using a jigsaw to cut various shapes, ranging from rectangular to curved forms, that provide the basis for canvas panels. Guided by intuition, the tool creates organic frames that Greenwald likens to hand-drawn lines. Born in Portland, ME and based in Ashfield, MA, his work has been the subject of solo exhibitions at Almine Rech, Brussels, Belgium; M+B, Los Angeles, CA; Harper’s, East Hampton and New York, NY; Best Western, Ridgewood, NY; Taymour Grahne Projects, London, United Kingdom; and Hesse Flatow, New York, NY.

Depicting a nocturnal scene made up of two loosely symmetrical sides, Super Spherical Earth Theory (12) antagonizes the ‘flat Earth’ theory that some ascribe to. On the contrary, the artist argues, “The Earth is spherical, but it surpasses that geometric constraint. It is, in fact, a cosmic body beyond general human understanding.” Featuring an automobile driving away into the distance, the image is bisected by a horizon line which functions doubly as the bottom of distant mountains and the point where treetops meet their trunks. Two crescent moons illuminate the purple sky and the bulbous path below, allowing multiple realities to coexist at the same time and place. For this series, Greenwald worked collaboratively with ART FOR CHANGE to explore printing techniques that imbue the editioned works with varying levels of physical texture, as well as replicate the undulating perimeter of the original work.

Regarding this philanthropic initiative of planting ten trees for every print sold, the artist adds, “Art is fundamental to human consciousness, and trees are fundamental to human life. If being a patron of art can affect the environment in a positive way, then we are existing in two separate realities at once.”
