Sam Feinstein

Radiant, monumental, transcendant presences – energy made visible as form – these are Sam Feinstein’s paintings. It has been said that Cezanne’s art was mundane, El Greco’s astral and Mondrian’s celestial. All three of these characteristics have emerged in Sam’s paintings at different times during the seventy-year evolution of his art from realism through expressionism, cubist-expressionism, Hofmann-influenced abstraction, to his own unique language of color – luminous and life-enhancing – in his mature abstract paintings. (Pat Stark Feinstein, 6)
