This event has ended.

Pace Prints presents an exhibition of new monoprints by Pat Steir.

Pat Steir’s most recent hand-painted monoprints introduce gestures from her painterly lexicon into the printmaking medium. In a process informed by decades of printmaking experience, the artist made unique works on mylar to be silkscreened on paper. Broad strokes of paint are then applied to the screenprinted surface, creating shimmering veils of color in loops, lines and dabs.

Steir’s prolific career has spanned over fifty years. Though rooted in elements of Abstract Expressionism, the artist’s work is decidedly postmodern, influenced by poetry, natural elements, John Cage’s ideas on chance and the I Ching. Often monumental in scale, employing a fastidious, yet seemingly loose use of color, the works are dripping dreamscapes that often reference the meditative and esoteric.
Pat Steir was born in Newark, New Jersey in 1940. She received a BFA from Pratt Institute in 1961. The artist’s paintings, prints and wall drawings have been the subject of over 150 solo exhibitions internationally, including The Whitney Museum of American Art, PS1 Contemporary Art Center, The Brooklyn Museum, Musée d’Art Moderne and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Steir has been making prints with Pace Editions since 1991. She lives and works in New York City.

Founded in 1968, Pace Prints is a publisher of contemporary fine arts prints with three printmaking workshops in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Since its founding, Pace Prints has collaborated in creating print editions with over 125 artists. Pace Prints is a member of the Art Dealers Association of America (ADAA) and the International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA).
