Rochelle Feinstein (born 1947) has long been influential as both an abstract painter and an educator (she was one of the first women to be tenured at in the Visual Arts at Yale, where she still teaches). Her thrillingly reckless paintings, full of gestural edge, humor and pop-cultural allusion, present a kind of two-dimensional precedent for the deftly coarse sculptures of Rachel Harrison, or an American counterpart to Martin Kippenberger.
This book—published for Feinstein’s 2016–17 shows in Munch and Hannover, and for her 2018 exhibition at the Bronx Museum in New York—introduces Feinstein’s oeuvre with reproductions of works from 1989 to the present, essays and interviews with the artist. The images are organized alphabetically (by title), inventory-style.
