Paintings & Mixed Media

Yale Epstein has been a huge creative force for over 40 years. As teacher, master printer, painter, collage artist and, most recently, photographer, he is the embodiment of the consummate artist. His work is beautifully crafted, lovingly organized, and of the highest quality as enduring works of art. Various printmaking techniques are foundational for his current series, to which are added any number of processes - dry pigments, inks, wax, dyes, marble dust, graphite, varnishes, washes, etc. - until each piece feels "right". His is a very personal approach to making art but is also one that, according to the artist, "integrates his lifetime involvement with the visual legacy of the past, as well as contemporary culture." His work evolves and is sometimes repeatedly reworked - honoring a continual dialogue between his self and his work. His hope is that those viewing or purchasing his work will, also, find or experience a personal resonance and meaning with his art.
