Vito Schnabel Gallery’s first exhibition with the acclaimed American artist Pat Steir.

On view from February 9th through April 7th, Pat Stieir: Paintings, will bring the artist’s latest canvases. The series, which stems from the aesthetic investigations of her hallmark Waterfall paintings of the late 1980s and 1990s, is distinguished by a central vertical “split”. These works deepen the atrist’s exploration of gravity, time, and fluidity, at the new stage of Steir’s prolific, nearly six-decade career. Her signature technique of pouring, dripping, and flinging paint abandons the brush and surrenders her material to its own accord: to fall freely and allow the impetus of gravity to transform paint’s trajectory and unrestricted flow. Swiss art lovers and guests of St.Moritz will have a chance to enjoy the new paintings within a context of a magnificent natural Alpine world in which nature is in constant motion, which Steir sees particularly fitting.

Vito Schnabel画廊与美国著名艺术家Pat Steir的首次展览。

从2月9日到4月7日,Pat Stieir:Paintings将展出这位艺术家的最新油画作品。该系列作品源于她20世纪80年代末和90年代后期的标志性瀑布画的美学研究,其特点是中央垂直的“分裂”。这些作品加深了这位艺术家对重力、时间和流动性的探索,这也是Steir近60年创作生涯的新阶段。她的标志性技巧是,把颜料倒出、流动,扔掉画笔,让材料自行下落,并允许重力推动,改变油漆的轨迹和不受限制的流动。 瑞士的艺术爱好者和St.Moritz的客人将有机会在一个壮丽的自然阿尔卑斯山世界的背景下欣赏这些画作,在这里,大自然不断运动,Steir认为这是特别合适的。
