Pat Steir, detail of Winter Group 2: Yellow Gold and Red Gold, 2009-2011, oil on canvas
Well I'm as tired of this rain as the next person, but Pat Steir's recent paintings make me feel better about the weather. If it's going to be this wet, I'd just just as soon revisit her droplets and rivulents, gushing surfaces and atmospheric mist from a nice, dry perspective. The work you see here is from Pat Steir: Winter Paintings at Cheim and Read in February.
