Glitter Paintings of the 1980s
On April 25, 1993, the late art critic Vivien Raynor (1927-2009) of The New York Times wrote: "Mr. Steiner, who is one of the very few artists to use glitter, not for camp or kitsch reasons, but as a means of evoking the play of natural light. Working on canvases that are all but square, the artist dusts on the granules or applies them in oval shapes as if they were jewels in a necklace. . .The results are too scintillating to be called pastoral. And, despite occasional hints of Cubism, they have a freshness that belies the thought that has gone into them. . ."
