Dean Levin, ‘10x18’, 2015, Phillips

From the Specialists:
South African-born artist Dean Levin’s works are characterized by an architecturally precise aesthetic that blurs the lines between the two and three dimensions. Having studied architecture at Pratt Institute, the young artist who is now practicing in New York utilizes a geometric visual language in combination with neutral tones to create a beautifully minimalist image. 10x18 from 2015 is an excellent example of Levin’s compositions which he has become known for.

About Dean Levin

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.

South African, b. 1988, Johannesburg, South Africa, based in New York, New York
