Pat Steir

  • Pat Steir: Kairos
    Quick shop

    This book explores Pat Steir’s most recent Kairos series of immersive paintings, installed at Lévy Gorvy in New York between September 7 and October 21, 2017. The series evolved out of Steir’s seminal Waterfall paintings, which proved her medium could “express itself as something non-objective.” As early as 1987, Steir poured, threw, or dragged mixtures of pigment across her canvases, shifting her focus to the natural movements of paint applied to canvas rather than deliberate mark-making. The book offers an intimate introduction to Steir’s most recent paintings and includes a conversation between Steir and Sylvère Lotringer, the founder ofSemiotext(e), as well as three poems that Steir published in the “Schizo-Culture” issue of the magazine; “Trance Abyss,” a poem by Anne Waldman; an essay by art historian and curator Courtney J. Martin; a detailed chronology illustrated by archival images; and high-quality photographs of Lévy Gorvy’s installations in both New York (currently on view), and London (2016).
