William Conger Evening Beach 2015 oil on wood 16" x 12"
I have posted William Conger's work before on this blog. I mentioned that he was a accomplished painter from Chicago and has worked tirelessly for the past 50 years making modernist paintings of the highest caliber. I am posting this recent painting because I feel it's simplicity and exquisite color is a bit of a break through for him. The luminosity and subtle tones interacting with the geometric structure are coming together in compatible yet illusive ways. The painting is an example of a dedication to abstraction and painting that is enviable and remarkable for an artist that seems to have found the fountain of youth.
