Alex Stein “Submughal”

This event has ended.

“Submughal,” Alex Stein’s new exhibition at Dumbo’s Safe-T-Gallery, consists of ten small paintings that directly address the integrity and beauty seen at the very threshold of vision. The paintings are small mylar squares -- each no more than 6 inches across -- that in turn, contain ten individual, heterogeneous, smaller paintings. Each of the smaller paintings is a completely realized work, work that explores both the romance of vision, (albeit through Stein’s rather mordant personal iconography) while also bringing the viewer into direct confrontation with his or her own limits of perception.

    I was checking out one of the paintings with a magnifying glass the gallery had provided. A man interrupted me and asked to try it out. Then he said, "Yeah, I did these. But I've never used this before." Stein was adamant that an art work should involve some kind of challenge to the viewer.
