Written by Rachel Feinstein, Contribution by Marc Jacobs and Florence Welch and Lisa Yuskavage, Introduction by Kelly Taxter
The first monograph from an art-world star whose work influences cultural luminaries from the worlds of fashion, film, and beyond.
Straddling pop culture, installation art, and contemporary culture, Rachel Feinstein's paintings, multipart installations, and additive sculptures reveal her singular flair for synthesizing myriad cultural fascinations--religion, myth, beauty, mortality, decadence--into lush vignettes of the marvelous. As an artist, she explores issues of taste and desire, fusing intellectual opposites like romance and pornography, elegance and kitsch, to create visually stunning tableaux that have intrigued and astonished art fans and critics alike. Rachel Feinstein is the artist's first major volume--a comprehensive look at her oeuvre, sculpture, paintings, pastels, and drawings and the definitive monograph surveying the work of this important female American artist. Beautifully designed and packaged, this volume provides a provoking and enlightening tour of this influential artist's body of work.
The exhibition Rachel Feinstein: Maiden, Mother Crone will be on view at the Jewish Museum November 1, 2019 - March 22, 2020.
