About

Dusk II (Oil Landscape Painting of a White Country Cottage) by David Konigsberg 27" X 30" x 1.5", oil on canvas unframed Signed, verso Painting is wired on reverse for simple hanging. Sides of canvas are cleanly painted white, so framing is optional and based on preference. This contemporary oil painting of a charming white farmhouse was made by Hudson, NY based artist, David Konigsberg, in 2019. The landscape features a picturesque cottage in a field of grass with dark leafy trees in the background against a dusty blue sky. Three tall windows run along the side of the white cabin. The crisp white form of the house stands in strong contrast to the thick, dark treeline that recedes in the background. David Konigsberg’s conceptual landscapes come alive in the space where earth and sky meet. Dramatic backdrops of tumultuous clouds above gesturally painted fields, informed by years of living in the upper Hudson Valley, provide a stage for factual and whimsical subject matter like flying space pods, whirling tornados, or quaint country barns. About the artist and work: David Konigsberg shares a renewed reverence for his surroundings in the Hudson Valley, where he has made his home for the past four years. Known for a conceptual realism that has, in the past, used landscape as a backdrop—and everything from angels to fantastical flying machines as characters and metaphors—with this series the artist moves the backdrop forward, in paintings that are more frankly personal and quietly revealing. An avid hiker, Konigsberg draws from long walks in farm country and frequent climbs among the peaks of the nearby Catskills and Taconics. Still, while his references are specific to the region, these paintings transcend location to enter a realm that is tranquil, deeply spiritual and universal. Beyond subject matter, the magic of the work can be found in Konigsberg’s handling of paint, in both the gestural brushwork that propels his characters and the use of layers to create illusions—for example, of haze or morning mist in an environment filled with atmospheric drama. David Konigsberg is a conceptual realist who works across media and painting genres to portray transitional spaces, metaphoric moments and alternative histories. A long-time member of the Gowanus and Red Hook artist communities in Brooklyn, he is now based in Hudson and employs the area's landscapes as the setting and sometimes subject of his work. The artist’s work has been exhibited throughout the United States and has been featured in The New York Times, Chronogram and Brooklyn Journal and numerous art and culture blogs. David Konigsberg lives and works in Hudson, New York.
