Rachel Feinstein

Rachel Feinstein

Rachel Feinstein's oeuvre is shaped by a variety of media and influences. Her elaborate installations, sculptures, drawings and photographs always revolve around the topics of femininity, beauty and literature. Feinstein mixes elements from different stylistic epochs, preferably from the baroque and rococo periods with those of Christian iconography, traditional fairy tales and contemporary cartoons. The construction of fantastic, multi-dimensional environments is an integral part of Feinstein's practice. In 2018 she was inspired by Franz Anton Bustelli's Rococo pedestals from the commedia dell'arte series and translated them into life-size garden sculptures. With “Maiden, Mother, Crone”, the Jewish Museum in New York 2020 exhibited the artist's first retrospective. Feinstein lives and works in New York, where she and her husband, the painter John Currin, are one of the prominent couples in the fashion and art scene.
