All Work Acrylic, Spray Paint, Fabric, Collage, Pastel Found Objects
For most of my career I have been a representational artist who embraced the possibilities of a fusion between abstraction and representation. Always a colorist, it was during my residency at Virginia Center for the Creative Arts in September 2012, that I was able to really explore these ideas and realized no choice need be made. From that realization I have moved on. I paint in acrylic on linen and paper and incorporate spray paint, fabric pastel, collage, found objects and stenciling.
My paintings reflect the personal and speak to the endless possibilities of paint on canvas, a sensibility shaped by color and the mystery of creating light as well as.an exploration of life’s potential. I have found that to be invigorating. The works on paper and board are a hybrid of color moments punctuated with collage and found objects. In turn this outpouring influences the representational work.
Though referenced to real things in nature, my paintings ultimately give way to inner impulses. For me a painting is complete not so much when everything is in place but rather when the emotion or response that inspired the painting has been revealed. Going forward I will continue to produce work that is beautiful but also intelligent.
Shawn James, Greenpoint Gallery, Brooklyn, NYC critic and gallery owner has said,
“Ms. Feinerman’s work exhibits a great sense of composition and attention to detail. Each piece has its own socio-cultural relevance, left for viewers’ personal discretion. The color palette chosen definitely provides a parable in its own which is very unique. In this particular medium of art, most artists allow the content to tell the story, so your technique is very interesting.”
Will be showing work at the New Members Show, 2017
