Ivan Greenberg was born in Ithaca, NY, and grew up in Manhattan in the shadow of Soho -- then a thriving art district. He paints faces and heads in a bold and colorful expressionistic style. The sixty-three works featured in Facing the Future were created over a four-year period from 2007 to 2010. These paintings do not whisper in your ear. They are engaged in struggle in a thick, painterly environment.
