Mammal Gallery Presents: Maya Stein-Disappearing South
Aug 4th -27th
Opening Reception: Thursday, Aug 4 (7-11 pm)
An outsider perspective inspired by the developing landscape of the American South.
Maya Stein creates extended media paintings that investigate the urban landscape through quotidian language in architecture. Her creative process is driven by the venture of capturing a place with the premise that, even within globalization and standardization in America, it is still possible to find elements that are uniquely connected to a place, vernacular elements, that are a worthy subject to highlight and uncover. Since her move from New York to Atlanta, Maya’s focus has turned to suburban life style and driving culture as means to understand Atlanta as well as other similar environments across America.
