Sandi Haber Fifield-Between Planting and Picking-3/3-4/16/11 @ Rick Webster Fine Art

Sandi Haber Fifield-Between Planting and Picking solo show opening March 3, 2011, is a good sign and indication that Winter is about to be over and Spring is right around the corner!

Sandi was so kind to send me a signed copy of  her  Between Planting and Picking monograph.

Her solo show will show selected images from a published monograph sharing the same title. The book, with is great imagery, makes me long for the upcoming spring with all its great greenery, earth, domestic and rural settings.

To me, living in such a Concrete Jungle as NYC can be, seeing all this wonderful lush, homey and sunny settings of this book reminded me and brought  me  such great memories  of my childhood while growing up at my Grandparents farm.

I am sure most us are longing for those wonderful sunny days of spring and summer. For now we will have Sandi Haber Fifield's Between Planting and Picking as a reminder of greater things to come... soon!

Don't miss this show and get the book!
See you at the opening!

To celebrate the end of winter and to anticipate spring, Rick Wester Fine Art will present an exhibition of recent color photographs by Sandi Haber Fifield, selected from her upcoming monograph, Between Planting and Picking (Charta, 2011). Beginning in June 2009 through the fall of 2010, Haber Fifield photographed family owned farms spanning New England to the West Coast and the Pacific Northwest. Teeming with the verdant and lush colors of these fertile fields, Haber Fifield made pictures that delicately balance the geographic with the geometric, while using the agricultural landscape to create a complex vocabulary of visual associations. Less documentary and more about her personal vision, she finds a metaphor in the unending cycle of growth and harvest for her own image-making.
