Valley House Gallery is pleased to present “Paintings” our tenth solo exhibition of work by artist Henry Finkelstein. Henry Finkelstein is a colorist and a landscape painter, with a working dynamic highly influenced by the Abstract Expressionists. Finkelstein paints from life, discovering meaning as he works. He attests, “nature gives me a grounding,” and elaborates “color is the most important thing. For me, color is emotion. It’s a sensibility inspired by the light and air in which I paint. These feelings are hard to name because this is the nature of emotion. And if I could name them what would there be left to look at?” Finkelstein reacts to the landscape in a loose, lyrical painting manner, as he focuses on discovering in nature new color relationships, spatial concerns, and rhythms. It is a process, as he says, of “listening to color.”Henry Finkelstein earned his MFA at Yale University School of Art in 1983, followed by a Fulbright Grant to study in Italy. In 1994, he was elected a National Academician. Finkelstein has taught painting and drawing in New York City since 1996. Henry Finkelstein will give an Artist Talk on Saturday, May 21, at 11:00am. The exhibition will be on view through June 18, 2022.
