and poet John Yau
Artist Pat Steir and poet John Yau collaborated to create four elegant lithographs combining image and text on backgrounds of intense color. As a suite, they explore the interrelation of the painterly gesture and the printed word and the emotional and intellectual impact of color and open space.
All of the prints except one are created entirely wit lithographic techniques--flat or blended rolls and photolithography. The exception is Sky's Four Sides, where Steir's sweeping mark is printed with pigmented beeswax, in a Graphicstudio process called Waxtype. The translucent textured wax floats over the saturated color, like a glass magnifying the words, or a cloud punctuating the meaning of the sky.
