In a 2015 article in The Brooklyn Rail, artist and writer Tom McGlynn described the work of Stephen Maine as follows: “Maine has an obvious formal control over his palette, due to a long-standing investigation of color, translucency, and the influence of color on the virtually shifting tectonics of “painting space”… This is a key to his practice. Color can directly engage the physiological mechanism of the eye while simultaneously initiating a string of associative logic in one’s random memory, and Maine’s paintings approach a critical boiling point at the admixture of optical reaction and the accidental, yet uncannily recognizable gesture.”

This work is from the Halftone Paintings series, which are made with a specialized printing surface that leaves a matrix of tiny dots in pattern similar to a photographic halftone. Halftone is the method used in commercial printing to translate the continuous tone of photographic emulsion to a field of minute dots of varying size. The Halftone Paintings somewhat resemble fragmentary enlargements of this kind of image. This painting has a particularly luminous, green ground, which Maine achieved with several thin layers of sprayed glaze. The two scrim-like layers of dots—purple-gray and deep orange—blend optically in a way that reminds Maine of Georges Seurat’s pointillism
