Alyssa Steiger creates paintings, drawings, and patterns that explore the language of formal details, such as form and color, but remain steeped in emotion. The paintings treat geometric forms like individual bodies while the interrelationship relays the emotion to the viewer. The works, abstract geometric compositions, translate the intangible into a concrete form. While thinking about sacred geometry and its roots in the creation of the world, she reintroduces harmony in a world where it no longer seems to exist. Through the interaction of these forms in a symmetric harmony, she creates balance in a world full of chaos. Each composition is a harmony, a symmetry of opposition.
Alyssa Steiger is a painter and pattern maker living and working in New York City. Her work reintroduces intent, emotion, physicality, and harmony into the tradition of geometric abstraction. Alyssa received her BFA from New York University in 2015. She is the recipient of the NYU Steinhardt Undergraduate Student Government Award of Excellence in Studio Art, the Long Island Arts Alliance Scholar Artist Award of Excellence, among others. Alyssa has a mural currently on view at the First Street Green Art Park. She has exhibited her work in many group exhibitions including “–scapes” at New York University, “Of Other Spaces” at New York University, and “March Global Projects” at Broadway Gallery. She was chosen by a curator to take part in a group exhibition titled “Absence/Presence,” where her work was described in the exhibition catalogue. The curator, Anna Blum, states “physical and conceptual dimensions coalesce and conceive a beautiful dichotomy between reality and reverie.” Alyssa’s work is in many private residences throughout the greater New York City area.
