Between Silver Light and Orange Shadow
 Elena Sisto

Lori Bookstein Gallery, 138 Tenth Ave., NYC (bt W18th & W19th St)

For the last three years, Elena Sisto’s paintings have explored the formative years of young women artists. Three-quarter profiles of women against the backdrop of the studio or partially hidden behind the canvas provide a portal into the psychology of a unique cast of characters. Though certainly abstracted into cartoonish guises, Sisto’s figures still maintain unique personalities and dispositions that hint at the possibility of narrative. The most recent paintings show an increasingly tighter cropping of the picture plane.
