Seen & Unseen Geoffrey SteinThe Wheeler Building 28 West 38th Street
The latest exhibit in our Space for Public Art Program features the work of New York City-based artist Geoffrey Stein. Located at The Wheeler Building, the display showcases five acrylic paintings, titled E.F., NYC Watertower, Foggy Empire State Building, Night Shadows and Night Traffic.
“Geoffrey Stein is a tremendously talented artist whose work exemplifies the dynamic, creative spirit of the Garment District,” said Barbara Blair, president of the Garment District Alliance. “We are delighted to showcase his work through the Garment District Space for Public Art program, and I encourage all to visit this wonderful installation.”
A figurative painter, Stein is interested in the tension between abstraction and realism, and his paintings explore the seen and unseen in the world. Acrylic on canvas, Stein’s E.F. will be displayed in the West Window of the G-System Space, and NYC Watertower, Foggy Empire State Building, Night Shadows and Night Traffic will be showcased in the East Window.
Formerly a reinsurance litigator, Stein began painting full-time in 2000 at the New York Studio School. He received an MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art, London in 2007. Based in New York City, Stein is represented by the Lionheart Gallery in Pound Ridge, New York, and the Minster Gallery in the UK. His work can be seen at www.geoffreystein.com.
