Married to renowned artist Stanley Boxer until his death in 2000, Joyce Weinstein’s paintings are informed by nature and her place of residence in rural Columbia County, New York. Fabricated in oil, washes, and impasto, the textural works incorporate her own visual language of brushed circles and rectangles, paint splatters, squiggles, and gestural sweeps of paint in vibrant colors ranging from fluorescent greens and hot pinks to brooding browns and blacks. To convey the openness and tranquility of her “country fields”, the artist often leaves parts of the linen canvas exposed and unprimed.
Born in New York in 1931, Weinstein studied at City College of New York and the Art Students League. Her first solo exhibition was in 1953 at the Perdalma Gallery in New York City, where she had additional solo shows from 1954 through 1956. She continues to actively show her work in the decades that followed, including one-artist exhibitions in Santa Cruz, CA; Houston, TX; Edmonton, Canada; Cologne, Germany; Chicago, IL; Calgary, Canada; and Naples, FL; and New York, NY.
Weinstein is represented in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Edmonton Museum, Canada, the New Jersey State Museum, Trenton; the Hines Collection, Boston; the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia; the Clint Eastwood Collection, Palo Alto, California; the Ciba Geigy Collection, New Jersey; New School for Social Research, New York; Weatherspoon Art Gallery Museum, the University of North Carolina, Greensborough; the Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts; the Centre de Creacio Contemporia Museum, Barcelona, Spain; Chatham College, Pittsburgh; Queens University, Agnis Etherington Art Center, Kingston, Ontario, Canada; and De Saisset Museum, University of Santa Clara, California.
