Pat Steir is the latest artist to join the esteemed roster of Hauser & Wirth. Long celebrated for her drippy waterfall paintings, which center gravity and chance as a key component to the work’s execution, the gallery will now be able to showcase Steir’s large abstract paintings at any of its 16 global locations.

According to Hauser & Wirth president, Marc Payot, Steir is a “key painter of her generation that has not gotten the attention she deserves, not in terms of the market—her market has developed in a substantial way in recent years—but in terms of a retrospective.”

Having recently complemented a series of monumental sculptures by Ugo Rondinone, Steir has “created a visual language wholly her own,” said Payot, adding that this lexicon is “a new abstraction that embraces anima and chance, that embeds poetry and philosophy in a practice which also encompasses writing, performance, and mentoring. She is simultaneously a living legend and a contemporary innovator.”

As Steir was formerly represented by Lévy Gorvy — which has since merged with Salon 94 and Amalia Dayan to become LGDR — the artist will continue to show at galleries and institutions that have exhibited her art.
