Rochelle Feinstein explores and collapses the history of painting, including text-based work, Neo-Expressionism, and collage, to create her distinctive and varied oeuvre. In recent years, Feinstein has reworked her older pieces, collaging photographs on top of old paintings and presenting slides of early work with text scrawled over the image. This retrospective mode prompts questions about individual artistic style and how we value and perceive art through the lens of authorship. Feinstein received a B.F.A. from Pratt Institute in 1975 and an M.F.A. from the University of Minnesota in 1978. Her work is exhibited widely in solo and group exhibitions in galleries and museums in the United States and Europe, and is included in numerous public and private collections. Among recent awards and grants she has received: a Guggenheim Fellowship, a Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation Fellowship, the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study Fellowship, a Joan Mitchell Foundation grant, and a Foundation for Contemporary Arts grant. Feinstein was appointed to the Yale faculty in 1994 as professor of Painting and Printmaking, and became Professor Emerita in 2017.
