Aline Feldman was born in 1928 and grew up in Kansas. She studied design and printmaking at Washington University in St. Louis under Werner Drewes and Fred Becker, respectively. She studied painting at Indiana University and did graduate work with Seong Moy. Feldman also studied Japanese woodcut with Unichi Hiratsuka.
Feldman first exhibited professionally at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. in 1979 and has since exhibited in Howard County, Maryland, across the United States and internationally in China, Europe and Australia. She has had solo exhibitions in New York, Washington D.C., Baltimore, London, Honolulu, St. Louis, North Carolina and West Virginia.
Feldman uses a method that she calls “non- traditional” white line woodcut technique, adapted from a classical Japanese woodcut technique in which patterns cut into wood are painted and transferred onto a more viable medium, like paper. Feldman employs unconventional tools, such as everyday kitchen and sewing utensils, to craft her cuttings, enabling the expansion of the wood cutting possibilities and allowing for more experimentation with light and form.
