Zeien is showing selected panel paintings that span a decade, realized in layer upon layer of acrylic; inspired by walls and billboards he has been photographing for years. The inspiration operates on the level of method rather than image. The works in "The Persistence of Memory" are abstract. "The painting on, scraping/tearing off, re-layering and redacting builds up a plastic surface related to the worked over, torn-down, and re-plastered walls, and re-posted kiosks," he says. The resulting variegated surface textures and surprising color juxtapositions are hypnotic. Be prepared to get lost in them.
