Sam Finkelstein was born in New York City, and currently lives in Rockland, Maine. His work centers on the human body as the link between the psychic states of ever-accelerating metropolitan centers and those of more time-expansive pastoral landscapes. This exploration manifests in sculpted stone, poetry, drawings, and music. Finkelstein is interested in his work primarily registering on a nonverbal level – something rooted in a primordial, energetic collective knowledge that we share with plants, trees, fellow animals, and the heavenly bodies of the cosmos.
