Project Description

Pat Steir

b. 1940, Newark, NJ
Lives and works in New York and Amsterdam

Pat Steir’s complex paintings, prints, and drawings encompass a lexicon of marks and signs.  She rejected traditional forms of composition in favor of seemingly unrelated shapes and forms.  Her works are combinations of random brushstrokes, grid lines, color charts, signs, color fields, and pictorial elements to create canvases that display a self-conscious symbolism.  Drips of paint in the works can refer to the actual process of painting.  Within her works there is no fixed meaning, as the artist allows her viewers to drawn their own inferences based on their personal history and associations.

Her work is included in many public collections including Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY; Tate Gallery, London, England; San Francisco Museum of Fine Arts, San Francisco, CA; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY; Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, NY; and National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C..  Pat Steir’s work continues to win her recognition and wide-acclaim.

The New York Times – Pat Steir Gets Discovered, Again
Acclaimed (then overlooked) during five decades, the painter hits a new tempo in life and art with a show at Barnes, a documentary and a seven-figure scale.

Apollo – ‘The paint makes its own image’ – an interview with Pat Steir
Pat Steir is the first artist to make site-specific paintings for the Barnes Foundation since Matisse – and, as she tells Apollo, it’s been a thrill to create a suite of her Waterfall paintings for its Annenberg Court. 

Artnet News – Pat Steir Will Make Monumental Waterfall Paintings for Both the Barnes and the Hirshhorn in 2019
In January, the Barnes Museum in Philadelphia will unveil “Silent Secret Waterfalls” The Barnes Series,” a monumental commission for the museum’s Annenberg Court entrance, where it hosts events. And in October, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. will present her largest site-specific commission to date: 28 new paintings that will span nearly 400 feet around the museum’s inner-circle gallery.
