David Konigsberg

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.

2022 Artist Statement:

In this, the most isolating era of my life, one aspect has remained unaffected: my penchant for frequent, solitary wandering, whether in the region around me, in coastal New England, or the microenvironments I cultivate in my own backyard. The natural world has long been the backdrop and source of my narratives, and this present body of work is clearly no exception. The paintings in this show were all produced in the past year and a half. Composed of three distinct movements, they derive from both memory and photographic record—and of course the tenor of the moment in a time of profound events and challenging moods.
