My Heart. Red. Bloody. Thumpy.
May 12 – June 13, 2015
526 West 26th Street #816 New York, NY 10001
My heart! Red! Bloody! Thumpy!
My legs!... Full of blood. Red inside. Full to the edge!
And my toes too! Bit of bone.
Orange lights (passing).
And what’s this?...
Last night I dreamt about you?! It wasn’t even a good dream?
(It was a bad dream.)
Today I’m thinking about you...
Stein is an artist who seeks a release from categorization. The work, whether object, image, word or sound, is all one. It is all born from a desire to move beyond the inherited modes of discourse that bind and shackle us. Stein seeks to build upon a foundation of opposition and contradiction: he views the fertile, liminal territory that can be conjured between opposing agencies, beyond expected and accepted mechanisms of language, as a space where vital and dynamic work can be initiated. For My Heart. Red. Bloody. Thumpy. Stein will present a new series of plaster and canvas works, each of which teases the divide between image and object / illusion and reality.
