GLOBAL PERSPECTIVES Alumni Gallery GLOBAL Perspectives Korean Network Sunspots II, 2007, by Pat Steir, B.F.A. ’62, reflects the artist’s strong interest in Asian art. The work belongs to the waterfall-and-drip series she started in the late 1980s and has been perfecting ever since. Influenced by the Chinese landscape painting tradition, the New York-based artist flung paint through the air from a saturated brush or poured it down the canvas to achieve the torrent of rich gold paint that flows over the emerald-green surface, much like sunshine spiraling off a current of water at close range. In Sunspots II Steir captures the transience of beauty and the fragility of nature, themes often addressed in Asian art. The monumental work was featured in “Dark and Light, Gravity and Levity,” a 2007 exhibition at Cheim & Read Gallery, New York City. Today, it is held in a private collection in Omaha, Nebraska.
