Sandy Litchfield uses a range of painterly mediums in her work along with collage and digital imagery. Her process involves gathering and piecing together fragments of collected imagery, which she then assembles into various configurations until they begin to make sense as a compositional whole. Her method of layering imagery, cutting, drawing, tearing, painting, scanning, printing and gluing obscures the distinctions between the mechanical image and the handmade. The fractured and rebuilt landscapes she creates are suggestive of a damaged place with fertile remains.

Born in New York, NY, Litchfield currently lives in Amherst, Massachusetts where she is an Assistant Professor at the University of Massachusetts. Litchfield received her BFA from the University of Colorado in Boulder and her MFA in 2003 from UMass Amherst. In 2007 she attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Her work has been exhibited in numerous museums including the DeCordova Museum, The Portland Art Museum and The Hunterdon Museum. Litchfield is a recipient of the Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowship and the Puffin Foundation Artists Grant Award. She’s had solo exhibitions at Carroll and Sons Gallery in Boston, Metaphor Contemporary Art in Brooklyn as well as several New England Colleges. Her work has been selected for review by The Brooklyn Rail, New American Paintings and The Boston Globe.
