In 2019-2020, the Collins C. Dibboll Art Gallery at Loyola University New Orleans presented “Xico Greenwald: Paintings, On the Table,” a curated exhibit featuring fourteen canvases from the previous ten years. In the accompanying exhibition catalog, Curator Saskia Ozols Eubanks wrote, “Greenwald’s work transcends problems associated with certain types of contemporary representation. His paintings are not in competition with the aesthetic of photography, the paintings go beyond the decorative, and are not kitschy or overly nostalgic. The work is fresh, new, and contemporary.”
Writing about Greenwald’s 2019 solo show at The Painting Center for Delicious Line, reviewer noted, “The more time one spends looking at these paintings, realistic but not hyperrealistic, careful but not precious, the greater the rewards.”
