Steir has said that she makes her work with the attitude of a gymnast: “first the meditation then the leap.” Honored by the Drawing Center in 2009 and hot on the heals of her solo Whitney show in 2011, Steir continues to be the topic of conversation after her amazing mural project in the Lower East side earlier this year. Check out the time lapse video of her making the work here.
