About the work: Contemporary landscape painter David Konigsberg is well known for his conceptual landscapes that come alive in the space where earth and sky meet. Dramatic backdrops of tumultuous clouds above gestural 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 tornadoes, or quaint country barns. A new series of paintings called "Fragments of the Inhabited Landscapes" features a diverse selection of small oil paintings and hand tinted monotypes on wood panel that highlight the elements comprising our landscape; this includes the flowers the grow from the ground, the houses built in the fields, the humans that ponder the world's beauty, and the planes that fly overhead. This pair of small floral paintings are whimsical and delicate, typical compositions for this artist who mostly paints in grand scale. Paintings can be hung together or apart, propped up as an object or hung on the wall. About the artist: 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.
