NEW YORK, NY.- Sue Scott Gallery presents The Nearly Endless Line, a site-specific wall drawing installation by internationally renowned artist Pat Steir from November 10th - January 9th.

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.”

A waterfall, like a river, pulls you to nature. Similarly, a viewers’ experience of Steir’s installation connects them to nature and the progression of time—“we understand time by moving through it.” The Nearly Endless Line offers a three-dimensional experience using very simple means: light and line. The darkness and mystery of the room allows the viewer to step out of reality and enter illusion.

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.
