About

Abstract landscape monotype of a large cumulus cloud in soft pink and periwinkle blue 12 x 12 inch image on 22 x 33 inch Rives BFK paper Rives BFK paper is made of cotton, has deckled edges and is acid-free Signed lower right This contemporary landscape monotype was made by Hudson, NY based artist, David Konigsberg, in 2018. The square print features a large cumulus cloud in soft blush pink and periwinkle blues over a dark brown horizon. Loose, gestural brushstrokes further abstract the image and provide visual texture. The monotype measures 12 x 12 inches on 22 x 33 inch acid-free, 100% cotton Rives BFK paper. The artist's signature is located in the lower right corner. About the artist: 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. Artist Statement: In many ways, this is a more intimate and personal group of paintings than in years past in that it draws from heavily from personal experience and my everyday surroundings, and rather than take this to another level of imaginary landscape and history, I stay in the moment and let the forces within that resonate with the viewer. In particular, the landscapes in this show draw from my long walks nearby and climbs in the Catskills. I find these walks and adventures among ancient mountains spiritual and deeply rewarding. At the same time, I have this habit of juxtaposing minuteness and immensity, and introduce, as well, the experience of my garden, a highly structured urban oasis whose most rebellious and delightful aspects are accidental poppies between the beds of unruly zinnias. In this group, I focus on what the garden produces in a collection of still lives and figures. These days, I find myself less inclined to make art that is supposed to be “about something” and am comfortable with letting metaphor reveal itself in quiet and unexpected ways. In fact, I’d say that many of these paintings took be by surprise. Although executed squarely within the traditions of landscape and still life, they have a life of their own. And to me, at least, they seem to come from somewhere beyond my control. David Konigsberg is an accomplished artist, exhibiting on a national scale. His work has been represented by Carrie Haddad Gallery based in Hudson, NY for over 15 years.
