Join us to celebrate the New Year and Rochelle Feinstein’s new book.
I’m with Her is the first book to offer a cohesive presentation of American artist Rochelle Feinstein’s rich career to date, with essays by by Jennifer Kabat and David Norr. Bringing together several important bodies of work, such as The Estate of Rochelle F, The Abramovic Method and The Wonderfuls, this compendium showcases an evolving, expansive and highly self-reflexive painting practice.
Possessing an extensive painting lexicon, Feinstein employs an array of media from silkscreen, to photography and assemblage, to abstract, expressive painting. These combined material processes are applied to an appropriative practice that cross-references the historical with the vernacular, the mythologies of art history and popular culture. Sourcing and reconstituting found visual material, Feinstein includes text, personal photography and even self-cannibalises past work. I’m with Her showcases a deliberately a-stylistic yet deeply personal body of work, vacillating between earnestness and irreverence.
Rochelle Feinstein’s forthcoming retrospective will open at Centre d’Art Contemporain, Geneva in January 2016, and travel to Lenbachhaus, Munich and Kestner-Gesellschaft, Hannover.
