Biography

A prominent New York artist who has exhibited widely, Joyce Weinstein brings an abstract sensibility to landscape imagery. She captures the feeling of “beautiful countryside.” In depictions of “rolling hills, mountains and distant views, the ever changing qualities of the sky, fields, woods and streams, old barns, haystacks, and weeds and wild flowers,” she conveys the essence of what she has seen and felt, making what is seemingly ambiguous, “tangible and unique.” The colors she observes seem to “appear,” such as a “sudden bright red, like a single flower all alone in a field of browns, tans, and umbers; the red of an old barn sitting in a field of snow; the colors of newly cut corn fields; or the changing hues of sky, grass, trees, and bushes.” Her canvases represent “another kind of “landscape painting,” more “real” than literal interpretations.” Born in New York in 1931, Weinstein studied at City College of New York and the Art Students League. She is the widow of the artist Stanley Boxer (1926-2000).
