Anita Steckel “Anita of New York” – The Suzanne Geiss Company

The Suzanne Geiss Company presents a selection of Anita Steckel’s works from her Giant Woman  (1970-1973) and New York Landscape (1970-1980) series.


Steckel’s large-scale New York Landscape collaged paintings fuse imagery inspired by the human, art historical, and urban bodies. Supine female figures, erect phalluses, dollar bills, the Mona Lisa, and other massive cultural symbols are inserted into the skyline. They sit on skyscrapers, make love, even battle in a humorous take on the city’s fraught, psychosexual sense of identity.
