Contemporary portraitist Geoffrey Stein left his job as a New York litigator over 15 years ago to pursue his creative passions. After studying at the Slade School of Fine Art in London, Geoffrey returned to New York with a new career: that of an artist. Based in a bright Garment District studio, Geoffrey creates portraits mostly from life, or from reference images he clips from magazines or his own photographs. Collage and layering are major components of the work. Varying degrees of abstraction within Geoffrey’s oeuvre set a range of emotional tones. “For me, there has always been a tension between the verbal and the visual,” he says. “I paint because I do not have words for the things the paintings are about.”
