I will just say it: Feintuch could be the best painter that you do not know about. A New York-based mid-career painter, Feintuch has, over the course of 30+ years, developed as nuanced and psychologically resonant a body of work as you will find. The figure has always been integral to Feintuch’s work, whether literally or metaphorically. His paintings are painstakingly executed with polymer emulsion, which he precisely layers to extraordinary effect. Drawing from a large range of art historical and contemporary sources, there is a lot to consider in Feintuch’s work. Whatever the subject of a given painting, for me, his work has always poignantly spoken to the fragility and vulnerability of human existence. Betty Cunningham will feature a small group of paintings and works on paper in her project space coming up in January 2017.
