Pace Prints presents Pat Steir: Editions & Monoprints, an exhibition of selected prints and unique works on paper that the artist created in collaboration with Pace Prints. Steir has been working with Pace Prints since 1999.  
 
Pat Steir’s body of work has evolved over the last 45 years into an organic dichotomy of the artist and her art. Her easily recognizable style, often relating to waterfalls, was developed from her in-depth analysis of pigment application; specifically it’s relation to gravity, color layering and density. The actual paint or ink falling down the substrate and forming a recognizable subject (the waterfall) is, in itself, a combination of real and symbolic imagery.  In Steir’s monoprints, the presence of the unpredictable “dripping” marks and the subtle and sparse artist’s brushstrokes work together to create her signature style.  These complimenting practices allow each work to be both inside and outside of the artist’s control.  Pat Steir's paintings and prints have been described as a conversation with the past - specifically with certain art historical movements, from Abstract Expressionism to Romanticism to traditional Chinese painting.
 
Born in Newark, New Jersey, Pat Steir has been an active artist for over 45 years. She is included in many public collections, including: The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.; Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York), The Tate Gallery, London; and Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.  Pat Steir lives and works in New York City and is represented by Cheim & Read Gallery, New York.
