Michael Steiner


Michael Steiner has been exhibiting since 1962, when he was eighteen. Over the years, his sculpture has evolved from an early exploration of minimal “primary structures” to an intensive exploration of the legacy of Cubist construction. In the last decade, Steiner has produced some of his most original, challenging works: A series of increasingly transparent, complex structures in steel, that most recently, posed fascinating questions about the relationship between space and solids, about the tension between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional and about our perceptions of repetition and symmetry, to name but a few.
