Pat Steir at the Hirshhorn

We explore the current exhibition of American painter, Pat Steir, at the Hirshhorn Museum of Art in Washington DC.  The exhibition is entitled Color Wheel, and consists of large paintings in a sequence of color combinations arrayed along the walls of the circular inner hallway.  Pat Steir uses chance processes, like John Cage, to produce complex vibrating colors in a monumental motif that recalls waterfalls.
