Overview

This beautiful volume provides an overview over the last three decades of Pat Steir’s astounding work, from early conceptual works of the 70s like Looking for the Mountain and Or, to the dazzling circles of light of her wave paintings in the 80s and the miracles of free-flowing and dripping paint that create Steir’s waterfalls, night skies and windswept waters of the 90s.

Generous color reproductions allow a deep insight into the work of a painter occupied with questions of time, movement, the very predicament of the act of painting, and theinherent qualities of her medium.

An essay by John Yau, who sees Steir as motivated by the "desire to integrate mind and body, thinking and doing, seeing and making," and an interview with Pat Steir by Barbara Weidle complement the paintings to form a marvelous and highly informative presentation of Steir’s work and career.
