This works comes with a secured certificate of authenticity.

In a process closely akin to relief printmaking, Maine uses textured surfaces to apply fluid acrylic paint indirectly to prepared canvas. He makes these surfaces or “plates,” some of which are quite large, out of common materials such as plywood, extruded foam, plastic and glue.
Integral to the process is the idea that the entire surface is treated with paint at the same moment. For Maine that means compositional phenomena are allowed to occur with minimal interference from his ego.

For this painting, Maine originally intended to apply additional layers of color, but the beautiful reddish blush near the top edge is just so nice, and he didn’t want to lose it.

Then he decided that it was enough.

Sometimes a painting reaches completion before you know it, so you have to remain alert to what is happening in front of your eyes.

This painting and P15-1028 were made using the same plate.

Stephen Maine is an American abstract painter, writer, curator and teacher. He is a member of the American Abstract Artists and a contributing editor at His paintings engage and extend contemporary ideas about color, composition, surface and process. He lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
