About the Artist

Epstein’s works out of an abstract expressionist tradition. She has always tended toward abstraction because she has preferred to embark on the creative process without any preconceived notions about the outcome. Her work evolves into a complex arrangement of shapes, forms, textures and colors, through a layering process. “My aim is to create an image that reveals itself slowly over time as opposed to being accessible all at once.”

Collage has been an important part of Epstein’s work. She creates a variety of different printing processes to create monoprints and serigraphs. She also uses planographic techniques such as screen prints and computer- generated printed images. In addition, Epstein paints and draws on plexiglass to achieve different ways of incorporating the collographs and serigraphs with drawing and painting.

The Gallery is located in FDU’s Edward Williams Hall, 150 Kotte Place, Hackensack, N.J. Gallery hours are Monday to Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., and Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. There is no admission charge. For directions and more information, call 201-692-244
