1. Video by Stuart Stelzer, courtesy Pat Steir and Sue Scott Gallery.

    Since the late Eighties, Steir has been known for her dripped and splashed waterfall imagery that reveal her interest in 19th-century Romantic paintings, Abstract Expressionism, Chinese landscape painting and the Chinese convention of flung ink painting. A lesser-known but equally significant part of Steir’s oeuvre are the wall drawings and installations she has been involved with for several decades. When inserted into architecture, these installations transform painting into a three-dimensional experience. As Steir has observed, “Installation allows the artist to paint out of the painting and into space and the viewer to move from space into a painting—the space where the act of painting takes place is in the imagination of the viewer.”

    The Nearly Endless Line offers a three-dimensional experience using very simple means: light and line. Steir takes the disembodied brushstroke off the canvas and uses it to form a line around the physical space that the viewer can't experience from one spot or one room -- the line bends around corners and closes a loop around the gallery. The grid and the brushstroke become a sequential experience the viewer activates as he or she moves through the installation, connecting them to the progression of time. The darkness and mystery of the room allows the viewer to step out of reality and enter illusion. The brushstroke transforms into a mark and a sign splintering into more urban signifiers as diverse as street art, blacklight or the urban grid versus the grid in painting.

    Pat Steir was born in Newark, New Jersey in 1940 and graduated from Pratt Institute with a BFA. She has exhibited internationally in museums and galleries since her first show at Terry Dintenfass in 1964 and has work represented in numerous museums around the world. The touring exhibition, Pat Steir: Drawing Out of Line which presents forty years of Steir’s drawing practices, organized by the RISD Museum of Art, is at the Neuberger Museum of Art September 11 - December 19, 2010. Pat Steir lives and works in New York City.

    The Nearly Endless Line, a site-specific wall drawing installation by internationally renowned artist Pat Steir from November 10th - January 9th. In conjunction with the exhibition, Anne Waldman and Ambrose Bye will present a poetry reading and performance at 7:00 pm on December 9th, 2010.

    I appreciate the attempt. At the same time, this video needs editing badly. I would have liked to actually SEE the pieces, rather than zooming in and out with a shaky camera.

    Good try, though.
