Sonia Gechtoff was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1926, she lives and works in New York. "Sonia Gechtoff occupies herself with what should be the first concerns of any artist: masses and reverberations of color, strength of composition, the residue of her own experience, a cause for meditation that urges the viewer not to move faster, but to slow down, to ponder opposites and potential underlying unities. "Above all, to make you see," as Joseph Conrad wrote. This is what Sonia Gechtoff does, both gracious and assertive."
