Emily Feinstein
Wood Untitled

About

Emily Feinstein grew up with a father who was a cabinetmaker with a shop in the basement. She spent a lot of time making things and constructing with wood. Her ongoing interest in raw materials and the structures we build and use in the every day stem largely from this. There’s often a suggestion of use, whether it be the actual material or the structure itself. Scale is important to her work in that it evoke a connection and intimacy with the viewer. Most of the wood is found on the street or scraps from the studio or cabinet making shops. The red and white forms are taken from wooden street barricades. Emily Feinstein received her M.F.A. at Milton Avery School of the Arts at Bard College. She has had her sculpture and installations included in exhibitions in numerous galleries in NYC and at Socrates Sculpture Park, Katonah Museum, Islip Art Museum, Long Island University, the Brooklyn Public Library and Governors Island. Feinstein has also been awarded residencies at Macdowell Colony, Yaddo, Blue Mountain Center and Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. Grants and awards include Change Inc., the Adolph Gottlieb Emergency Grant, and Center for Contemporary Performance Art. She was selected Artist of the Month by Artist Space Online Forum. Reviews of her work have been featured in the New York Times by Roberta Smith, Ken Johnson, and Grace Gleuck.
