Statement

Stephanie Stein was born and raised in New York City. She received a BFA in Printmaking from the Philadelphia College of Art (now University of the Arts) and spent a year studying at Temple University Rome and traveling in Europe and North Africa. She now lives in Los Angeles.

In her paintings Stein offers for our consideration the sometimes uneasy coexistence of opposites: sky and earth, conflict and harmony, destruction and creation. The work is pervaded by a sense of anxious longing to make distance between the self and the busy confusions of the world.

“I like sending things out to sea, so to speak, to look at things from afar. Be it natural or man made, personal or worldly, I find destruction both horrifying and deeply compelling. Early American history is a beautiful and ghastly example of the conundrums in this life. I am fascinated by conflict; the issues of growth and greed, death and rebirth, independence and slavery."
