Publisher's description: From unmoving nudes in empty spaces to citrus fruits displayed with empty oyster shells and chicken eggs with best-before dates, Moscow-born artist Pavel Feinstein's painting style is distinctive and unmistakable -- a grey, undefined background underpins one or several objects, carefully arranged and sensuously captured. Presenting still lifes and nudes produced by Feinstein between 2013 and 2015, this book explores how he transposes artistic traditions from the seventeenth-century to the present day, toying with the viewer's perceptions and blurring the boundaries between painter and model. In collaboration with Galerie Kiefer, Kay Heymer looks at the ways Feinstein's work inevitably brings to mind the compositions of Cezanne, Manet, and Van Gogh, but is actually characterized by additional elements, such as the relocation of desirable objects to austere spaces and the saturation of his ensembles with a mysterious, melancholy air. Filled with over eighty color images, Pavel Feinstein provides a vital examination of this German-based artist and his works.
