Ben Borter & Jonathan Stein

Show ran from 3/1/2001 to 3/24/2001

Qualms, painting

“Qualms” is a two-person show dealing with the repercussions of painting without thinking, or with thinking too much. Cold calculating acts or impulsive reactions? Should there be a reason to regret either? Details to discern: Jonathan Stein’s paintings on wood infuse imagery with poetry in “take a couple; do something to them, do something else (a couple of ideas + -).” Benjamin Borter’s paintings on canvas show a general need to make all of his work in one grand night of performance, or at the last minute, depending on how you look at it.
