This project was created with the same spirit that america was founded on. Our intentions are to connect everyone in america through the lens of this camera and social networking sites. We can't do this without you. We want to tell your story and show your city or town through photographs of you, and people you know. As we travel around america looking for people and places to shoot you will be able to keep track of where we are going and help us decide where we go next. Join us in our journey by liking our facebook to get yourself photographed by us.
An extra special thanks to Brandon Rein, Scotty Hoffman and Trevor Atwater.
Leslie Sacks Contemporary is pleased to present an interview with Alex Weinstein in a short film by Eric Minh Swenson.
Alex Weinstein’s seascape paintings push identifiable imagery to the absolute edge of recognition, blurring the line between representation and abstraction. His singular panels appear as abstract color field paintings; when combined as a diptych, however, ocean imagery takes shape, as the two panels ground one another in realism.
Weinstein’s sculptural work looks sliced from the ocean's surface, full of texture, drama and weight. Weinstein uses automotive paint and fiberglass to create a high gloss finish, which reflects light from every angle, revealing a depth and spectrum of color in each panel. True to the ephemeral nature of the ocean itself, the surface appears to shift constantly and is visually elusive.
Alex Weinstein’s work is held in significant private and corporate collections and is in the permanent collection of the Laguna Art Museum, Laguna Beach, California.
