About

Weinstein’s new works are both gutsy and minimalist in her use of florescent and brooding colors, energetic scrawls, and open fields of raw linen.   Weinstein’s exhibition opens Thursday, July 28 and runs through August 26, 2016 with an opening reception on Thursday, July 28 from 6 to 8 pm.

A highly respected New York artist who has been in numerous national and international exhibitions, Joyce Weinstein creates dynamic works in which abstraction obscures hints of the natural world.  Nature is most apparent in her use of light, which she creates using a combination of techniques: washes, impasto, and contrasts of texture and hue. 

Weinstein uncovers dynamic balances among these opposites, so that her work achieves a fine equilibrium of both spontaneity and control. Karen Wilkin states in the Partisan Review, “Weinstein is capable of marvelous, zany passages: scribbles, spots and scratches of color that melt into the ground and then pull loose.  These explosive passages look spontaneous…as though everything simply found its proper place without effort.”  As Weinstein says these works are characterized by a “complicated simplicity” intensified though tension and liquidity, refinement and muscularity, and moody hues and fiery colors.
