William Steiger
Mixed Signals #3

2017

About

William Steiger's Mixed Signals #3 is a work on paper collaged together from hand cut paper, glue and gouache. The blue tones in the background are from hand marbling the paper. Primary tones and hues of this piece are black, white and blue. Steiger’s compositions are atmospheric, yet stylized. The clean, thoughtfully conceived lines and forms depict trams, roller coasters, and buildings at the height of pre-war industrial achievement. Wires, tracks and horizons extend through the works, creating an expansive scene where sky, ground and architecture move far beyond the confines of the canvas and paper. Though figuratively devoid of humans, Steiger establishes a distinct, often dramatic, perspective, capturing fragments of structures and landscapes where the viewer becomes the sole active participant standing before a monumental scene. Imparting a sense of timeless sentimentality, Steiger renders modern landscapes from the first half of the 20th century, often contrasting unspoiled horizons with urbanization. The disparate settings are intertwined through an idealistic lens in which the past co-habituates with the present. Steiger received his MFA in Painting from Yale University School of Art, New Haven, CT. He lives and works in New York City.
