Editorial Reviews

ARB Review
"An odd-ball artist from outre-mer" is how a mutual friend describes him. He seems to me to be a sort of latter-day El Greco, obsessed by his own brand of magic, and I find that sort of vision very important.
The Book Reader
The Art of Simon Dinnerstein has over 200 pages of magical intensity. Stunning color and black and white plates display works of the artist's own selection. On the lonely road outside fashionable taste, Dinnerstein pursues a highly personal art. His intense scrutiny of the familiar becomes a "reverence that transforms reality into the dreamlike".
Booknews
A radiant and frequently haunting representation of the Brooklyn artist's paintings, etchings, and sketches, masterfully reproduced. Compiled by the artist, the collection represents the full range of his work, in which his abiding concern is continually manifest; in Dinnerstein's own words, that concern is his "interest in people--in the individual and in the dreams and mysteries, the visual information and enthusiasms that define human beings." 121/4x91/4". Paper edition (unseen), $35. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

What People are Saying About This

Albert Boime
Dinnerstein's work is full of ambiguity and never lends itself to easy labels. But his close crutiny and claustrophobic environments consistently draw the beholder in close to share his lifestyle. The centering of the family affection and the links to the rest of the world through this centering becomes an ecumencial mission, as if Dinnerstein wants to draw the whole world into this family center....to 'show people that they might get in touch with something in themselves that is deeply and even painfully private.
Thomas M. Messer
No one could accuse Simon Dinnerstein of being a fashionable artist. Not at the time he began, not now, and not at any time in between. Leafing through the catalogue of his mature work that now spans two decades, one is struck immediately by his total disregard of prevailing taste, his apparent disinterest in the visual arguments of advanced art circles, and conversely, by his single-minded concentration upon the development of a highly personal, crearive pursuit....It wil be of real interest to folow Simon Dinnerstein's art as it evolves further.
