Levin’s practice combines mediums and materials to create abstract works that blur the line between process and product. Working in sculpture, painting, and installation, Levin lends an architectural sensibility to the aesthetic exploration of space and light. Combining industrial elements such plaster and tile with more traditional materials such as oil paint and canvas, Dean relies on both the physical and chemical properties of his chosen materials, activating the visual and conceptual tension that arises from their interaction.
Dean Levin (b. 1988, Johannesburg, South Africa) lives and works in New York City. He received a Bachelor of Architecture from Pratt Institute in 2012. Levin’s debut solo exhibition, 1X1, at Robert Blumenthal Gallery, New York, featured an interactive steel-framed sculpture that contained several paintings meant to be viewed as either one artwork or a series of individual objects. Levin’s work is currently on view at Sean Kelly Gallery, New York (through August 1). A solo exhibition at Retrospective Gallery, Hudson, New York opens on Friday, August 2.
