David Konigsberg
Countertop Vessels #2 (Charming Contemporary Still Life of Olive Oil Cruet)

2017

$900

About

oil on wood panel 7 x 8 x 2 inches This listing is available from Carrie Haddad Gallery, based in Hudson, NY. David Konigbserg offers a small still life painting of an olive oil cruet, coffee pot and small red and white striped bowl that floats out of the frame. The artist shifts gears after painting vast, sweeping views of the Hudson Valley landscape to turn more inward, looking at smaller objects in his home or flowers from his beautiful garden. His brush is loose and infuses the simplest objects with an air of romanticism and nostalgia. 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 out 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.
