MULTI-LIBRIUM
Four years in the making, MULTI-LIBRIUM is an installation made up of more than 10,000 reused art invitations and measures 50 feet x 23 feet. It seeks to challenge preconceived notions of the traditional gallery space, delivering an engaging contemporary installation where the use of space is limited only to the floor. The installation examines and illustrates the concept of equilibrium in which all biological systems co-exist, survive and function, a concept that operates both on a cellular and exterior level. The installation compares, contrasts and balances art and science, and creates soft tension between the organic and geometric.

Special thanks to all who donated the cards for this installation: Anya Tish Gallery, Houston Arts Alliance, the Museum of Geometric and Madi Art Dallas, the Museum of Printing History Houston, Box13, and John Cleary Gallery.

Currently, Feinstein has a solo show of her 2D and 3D monoprints at the Williams Tower Gallery as part of PRINTHOUSTON 2012. This exhibition is open Monday-Friday 8-6pm and runs until July 27. This month, Feinstein’s work is also included in two group exhibitions at the International Print center New York and Manhattan Graphics Center, New York.

Feinstein has been selected four times for the prestigious exhibitions at the International Print Center New York, and in 2008 was featured in a retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Printing History in Houston. In 2010 she was invited to participate in the 14th Print Biennale in Taiwan. She has been exhibiting in group and solo shows throughout the United States and Europe and her work is represented in numerous public and private collections, among them: the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taiwan, Museum of Printing History, Houston, Texas, The Museum of geometric and Madi art, Skopelos Foundation for the Arts, Skopleos, Greece, Roennebaeksholm Arts & Culture Centre, Naestved, Denmark.
