from the Slade School of Fine Art, London. Stein lives and paints in New York City.

I am a figurative painter who prefers to work from life when possible. I paint to find out what I think
about the world; to discover the things I do not have words for. I savor the slips of the hand that express
one’s unconscious feelings about the person being painted. I am interested in the tension between abstraction
and realism. I do not want to make an academic copy of the model or a photo realistic illustration.
My paintings explore the tension between what needs to be shown and what does not, the seen and the unseen.
