Christopher Joy and Zachary Keeting visit the studio of painter Stephen Maine.
Discussing his relationship to the image in his paintings, Maine comments: "My effort is to try to control the contact of the material to the surface of the panel or the canvas in such a way the reading of it remains very open." He continues, commenting on his process: "The way that I have avoided composition is to paint in such a way so that the entire surface is physically addressed at the same time all at once. It's like stamping out a coin... It's been interestng to gain a kind of mastery in this... and then to try and forget that and let the machine, let the process... make a result for you in lieu of decisions."
