PAT STEIR BLUE RIVER AT NATIONAL ACADEMY

Pat Steir has created three new paintings to be exhibited at the National Academy Museum.  On view from May 23 through September 8, the artist’s most recent works – Orange, Green, and Yellow, which measure 132 x 50 inches each-from her Waterfall series and shown with the artist’s largest canvas to date, Blue River.

Steir’s monumental paintings depict more than simply the fluidity of water and paint.  They also suggest a metaphysical place in which psychological states of being ebb and flow. On the subject of water, Steir has stated: “I paint water often, but don’t depict it; it is the paint itself that flows.”

For the artist, these paintings are explorations of perception, mood, and a contemplative space. They are immense, durational, and experiential not only through their sheer size, but also through their inherent gestural and evocative qualities. Ultimately, they envelop the viewer and allow us to become lost in an ethereal, aqueous world.
