HENRY FINKELSTEIN, opening March 21:

“Color, light and air, space and volume have always been at the core of my paintings. But increasingly I find that the character of the place itself is just as important to me. I’m drawn to old places, where people have lived a long time, where the land is considered, but not overly manicured, with ancient trees that frame some sort of gardening or farming. When I was in art school in the 1970s, I would not have admitted these things. Most of the discussion was limited to the abstract or formal elements of painting. So much has changed since then that such taboos have become irrelevant. This is liberating for me. My love for the subject doesn’t lessen my passion for the formal. It is always a synthesis of the two.”

Henry Finkelstein returns for his ninth solo exhibition at Valley House Gallery since 2002. A residency at Rochefort-en-Terre in Brittany, France, in 1992, and again in 2000, introduced him to this region where he returns each summer to paint from direct observation. Finkelstein earned his MFA in painting from 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.
