ABOUT
American, b. 1944 — Sandy Sokoloff was educated in the New York City public school system and attended Queens College, CUNY on a Regents Scholarship before enrolling at Boston University School of Fine and Applied Arts in 1962. He received a BFA in 1966 and MFA in Painting, 1969. He then taught at Wellesley College (1969-76); Boston University (1977-78); Art Institute of Boston (1979-80). He had exhibitions beginning in 1973 and culminating in 1993 when he reached a spiritual and artistic impasse. He withdrew from the art world. Returning to the studio in 2013 after a twenty-year hiatus, he deepened his investigation into the spiritual nature of art. By 2019 he had produced a body of work which extrapolates the imagery of ancient Judaic mysticism and mounted the one-man exhibition ‘Emanation’. A year later (2020) his work was included in the group exhibition‘Transcendence’ along with artists Anila Quayyum Agha, Shahzia Sikander, and Zarina.

Sandy Sokoloff In The Studio

"For me, painting is a spiritual act and making paintings is my spiritual practice. I want my paintings to open a door to the deepest truths of the spirit beyond the confines of the body."
