Dean Levin’s process-based paintings reflect his training in architecture, dealing with conceptual questions of space and form. His canvases employ grids, indices, and refined design techniques, and are made of such functional materials as fiberglass-reinforced plaster and polished steel. Levin’s monochromes, stained by a special blend of oil and turpentine, are reminiscent of the minimalist Light and Space works of John McCracken and Peter Alexander—artists who helped pioneer a movement famously based in California, where Levin grew up.
