About

Oil on canvas Hand-signed "Pat Steir, 1988" verso Excellent Condition Though her early work was loosely allied with Conceptual Art and Minimalism, Pat Steir's poured “Waterfall” paintings initiated in 1988 gained her critical acclaim. Profoundly influenced by Chinese painting traditions and techniques—especially the marks of the eighth- and ninth-century Yi-pin “ink-splashing” (or "flung ink") painters—mentorships from John Cage and Agnes Martin, and the harmony between man and nature espoused by Taoist philosophy, Steir considers elemental forces active participants in her work, intentionally removing herself from the action and allowing gravity, time, and the environment to determine the work’s result. However, despite this painting's obvious debt to physicality of paint and the effect of gravity upon it, "Waterfall" retains a sense of delicacy, creating a tension between the tempestuous and tranquil aspects of the natural world.
