Triptych

The Art of Simon Dinnerstein

Simon Dinnerstein, The Fulbright Triptych, detail, center panel

Fantastic essay by Guy Davenport on the art of Simon Dinnerstein. Davenport writes: "Simon Dinnerstein’s Fulbright Triptych is so symmetrically a harmony and so richly a composite of genres (family portrait, still life, landscape, and a collage that amounts to a complex poem)..." Davenport continues, describing the transition from the northern european influenced works like the Fullbright Triptych to Dinnerstein's more recent work, a "Balthusian vision of the female nude sleeping or daydreaming, or simply being there."

Simon Dinnerstein, The Fulbright Triptych and Related Works is on view at the Tenri Cultural Institute of New York through June 10, 2011.
