"Making Light" - Larry Brown Jean Feinberg, November 22 - December 5, 2012
Your subtle color palette is so appealing...the contrast between the painted surfaces and the found wood sets up a whole series of interesting dialogues relating to number, time, dimensionality, and history. The work is very rich and complex, but achieved with such economy.
-Rachel Careau, poet, 2016
"Feinberg gravitates toward the frankness of physical fact, so three-dimensional form has a natural appeal for her. But she is also devoted to the poetic implications of surface nuance and color. One of her strengths is an ability to create a pronounced sense of materiality while evoking the immaterial and evanescent. Her work of recent years expresses this duality with increasing clarity."
-David Hornung, artist, author of
Color: A Workshop for Artists and Designers, 2013
Landscape(2), which, when combined with the 42 Whites, make a memorable and intriguing statement on how subtle form and color can affect mood.
- D. Dominick Lombardi, The New York Times
An almost sculptural challenge to painting is offered
the gesture into three dimensions keeps its force. Feinberg manages, finally, a lively stand-off between two- and three-dimensional impulses.
- Carter Ratcliff, Art International
Feinbergs subtly hued, rusticated, minimalist constructions are very much in line with the accomplished abstract canvases she has exhibited throughout her career. Her loose, but thoughtful and spatial geometric style has always been concerned with planar color
Her sensitivity to light, shape, and line transforms
- Jeanette Fintz, The Artful Mind
A quiet assurance suffuses Feinbergs recent work, though she is not a complacent painter
All in all, Feinbergs new paintings are less aggressive than her previous work and perhaps in spite of themselves more seductive.
- Nancy Princenthal, Artnews
The fragility and delicacy of these paintings, which does not preclude a real toughness that is evident in the rigor of their attention
their sensuality is chastened by a severe sense of morality of form. Its as scrupulous a response to the twilight of modernism as any.
- Barry Schwabsky, Arts
They have a combination of gestural openness, an acute compositional sense poised on disintegration, and a rippling room-filling light that gives me goose bumps
You know you are in the presence of a real poet of abstract painting when the image pierces your heart before youve figured out what youre looking at.
- Stephen Westfall, Art in America
In Feinbergs work, dread and wonder overlap
- John Yau, Artforum
