Biography Alan Sonfist
Education at the University of Illinois then on to Ohio State University where he came under the influence of Hoyt Sherman.
Moved back to New York and progessed into sculpture.
Influenced by Asher Durand and his "Letters on Landscape Painting" he created a series of works entitled "Dreams with Asher B. Durand" which involved finding the scenes that Durand had painted and then photographing as they are now. Another creation was "Element Selections--Frozen in Time" which had him placing twigs and leaves from a given site in the forest and then placing them onto a canvas in the same configuration. This was then returned to nature where he allowed natural decomposition to occur.
