Summertime greetings all,
Just wanted to take a moment tonight to share with you a wonderful article on my work in the July edition of Citizen LA Magazine. It's titled "Erica Steiner: Can Art Still Be Beautiful?" and was the result of a long, lively afternoon spent in conversation with writer Kristi Collicott, who managed to get at the core of my work, ideas and approach to painting in a much more penetrating and insightful way than I had ever been able to articulate in my many attempts. You can find it online at http://www.citizenla.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=440
or if you're in the LA area, pick up a copy around town (they're free).
As it happens, the article was written in promotion of my upcoming July/August solo show at Edgar Varela Fine Arts in downtown LA (www.edgarvarelafinearts.com), for which I have just a couple weeks ago completed a new body of work that I am really excited about. For those of you in the LA area, I hope you'll stop by the opening next Saturday night the 19th, 7-11pm, and partake. For those of you who for whom LA is a distant land, if you know anyone in the area you think might enjoy the work, I would be hugely appreciative if you would spread the word. Thank you so much for your ongoing support!
