Lea Feinstein is a contemporary painter based out of Stanford, California. Her work is inspired by California's varied landscape, she writes "[t]hese paintings…are inspired by regular flow patterns occurring in widely disparate phenomena—vapor trails merging and dissipating in the sky, rivers joining, blood flowing in the circulatory systems of living beings, sands shifted by the tides, and rain streaming on glass.
Working primarily with acrylic on unusual substrates - such as Tyvek - Feinstein's work has a strong sense of movement and energy.
Feinstein gravitates toward Tyvek since "It is inexpensive, acid free, and extremely tough and lends itself to manipulation in both two and three dimensions, which suits my inclination to explore a material deeply."
Feinstein paints, folds, dyes, crumples and manipulates her paintings to create dimension and depth to her work.
“I am inspired by all the things I see around me,” said Feinstein. “. . .drops on a windshield, the clouds, the movement of the tide–everything that is rhythmic and repetitive but in constant motion.”
A fabulous time was had by all on our trip to the Turks last week for the kids' school break!
