Yale Epstein - painter, photographer

Yale Epstein is an American contemporary artist who resides in New York. Working as an artist for over 50 years, his work is an ever-evolving process and he focuses on creating abstract paintings.

Process-focused artist

Living in New York in the 50s and 60s was an incredible opportunity for Epstein, as he was able to study under renowned artists such as Mark Rothko and Ad Reinhardt. His work today is based on imagination and intuition; he is fascinated with the process. While his work has evolved over the years, there remains an underlying ‘conversation’ and a personal vocabulary which Epstein explores in his work.

Bold abstraction

In this series, Epstein works in an abstract style, exploring themes of movement, symmetry, pattern and grid configurations. He experiments with colour combinations to create compositions that vary from more minimalistic geometric works to intricate paintings that interweave organic forms. He begins by painting directly onto rag paper, and shapes and impressions emerge which he then develops further.

International acclaim

Epstein has had a long and successful career that includes more than 50 solo shows in the USA, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland, and has participated in art expos such as in Basel and Hong Kong. His work features in numerous corporate and public collections, including the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris and the Brooklyn Museum. He was a Visiting Artist at the American Academy in Rome, and in 2017 he was awarded the prestigious Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant.
