Having started out as a landscape artist, Alex Weinstein is today mostly known for his studies of the ocean surface. A life-long avid surfer, Weinstein conveys the immersive experience of water in his seascapes, rendering them devoid of human or animal presence and opting not to depict them in the form of dramatic wave crashes and with sunsets. His panels instead display calm horizon lines with impassioned blue and grayish hues that share the composition and sensibility of Mark Rothko’s paintings. Weinstein also makes relief sculptures out of fiberglass and urethane resins which are also representations of the mesmerizing nature of water. Weinstein has a BFA from Brown University and has had several exhibitions in the United States as well as France, Australia, England, Japan and Brazil.
