a painter whose origins are in minimalist drawing. His work reflects, at its heart, his attraction to line and space. His works on paper (from the 1990s) were mechanical grids with massed lines that mix and intertwine.
His work remains abstract with titles of an arbitrary nature. He still draws on the venerable lexicon of the New York School in this new work (think Cy Twombly and Jackson Pollock) but while the theory is the same the work is unique.
Sheinkman has a BA from Princeton. His work is included in museum collections at the Museum of Modern Art (New York), the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Whitney, the National Gallery and many others.
