Review: Joni Sternbach at Rick Wester Fine Art

SurfLand, Revisited 2006-2011

Extended through August 10, 2012

The timelessness to the work of Joni Sternbach is perhaps what first intrigues our gaze. As we wander closer we are enchanted by each heroic subject. Posing with their surfboards along the beach we find Sternbach's dedication to the subject transcends typecasting. Young and old; men, women, and even a few merpeople are captured in groups large and small and in solitary pose. The work may at first seem simple or candid, but the true hand of a master moves seemingly without effort. There is a natural and honest quality to the work, a clean truth behind the American pastime Sternbach has focused on. The prints themselves are tintypes, an almost lost process dating back to the Civil War era. The quality of tone and smoothness of surface renders each work as unique as the figure depicted.
