Hard-edge paintings of bridges, towering structures and signage by American artist William Steiger. Devoid of human presence, the paintings look like architectural blueprints capturing fragments of structures and landscapes where the viewer becomes the sole active participant standing before a monumental scene. Steiger paints his subject matter with just enough detail emphasizing composition, hue, and texture. He imparts a timeless sentimentality by contrasting unspoiled horizons with urbanization and invokes a sense of wonder and awe through the splendor of early modernism and rural imagery.
On view at Margaret Thatcher Projects through March 12.
