Steiger visualizes these objects and reexaminies their lines, shapes and shadows; suddenly their design is very much in focus, as if it were always the intent. By zooming in on a passenger car dangling from a Ferris wheel or how light illuminates the roof of a grain elevator, the scenes eliminate reference to time and place. We are effectively transported to both another time and frame of mind. —Christopher Gaillard
Timeless and evocative, yet overwhelmingly human, Steiger’s clash of nature and man never ceases to move me. —Melissa Milgrom
