Pat Steir: Waterfall Paintings on Paper

Lévy Gorvy is pleased to announce the exhibition Pat Steir: Waterfall Paintings on Paper, opening August 17, 2020 at the gallery’s New York City location. Working on paper has been a quintessential aspect of Steir’s acclaimed practice since the 1970s. The artist has produced drawings and prints alongside her paintings for decades, but has rarely released them from her own collection. When she does so, it is almost always for acquisitions by foremost museums: the Museum of Modern Art in New York is home to more than twenty of Steir’s works on paper. The publication Pat Steir: Drawing Out of Line highlights the artist’s extensive work on paper. Produced in conjunction with Steir’s 2010 survey exhibition at RISD, the catalogue also features illustrated essays by co-curators Susan Harris and Jan Howard.

Together with her careful study of Chinese landscape paintings, Steir’s affinity with Eastern spiritual and philosophical traditions has figured centrally in her conception of the act of painting as a form of meditation, a conscious sharpening of focus that leads to the merging of the artist with the work of art.
