In this new print, Steiger returns to a favored subject of his, the Parachute Jump at Coney Island, NY. The structure that was initially built as a ride to attract thrill-seekers, remains a part of the cityscape; a beloved reminder of a bygone era. The artist has chosen a dramatic viewpoint, gazing up at the stark silhouette against a horizonless sky. It is monochromatic in the way a memory often is, reminiscent of another time, sharp in detail yet not beholden to context.
