You are invited to the Opening Reception for a solo exhibition of recent paintings by New York artist Henry Finkelstein on Saturday, May 21, 6:00pm-8:00pm, at Valley House Gallery in Dallas.
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.
"Paintings" is Henry Finkelstein’s tenth solo exhibition at Valley House Gallery since 2002.
Henry Finkelstein will give an Artist Talk on Saturday, May 21, at 11:00am.
"Henry Finkelstein: Paintings" will be on view from May 21 through June 18, 2022, every Monday through Saturday, 10:00am to 5:00pm, at Valley House Gallery, 6616 Spring Valley Road (between Preston and Hillcrest), Dallas, TX 75254.
