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."
