William Steiger
Junction: Paintings 1997-2007

June 1st-July 10th, 2007

Roy Boyd Gallery
739 N. Wells Street
Chicago, IL 60610

William Steiger’s first solo exhibition in Chicago is presented by the venerable Roy Boyd Gallery. Junction highlights Steiger’s recent paintings, but juxtaposes them with selected work from the past decade, thereby providing a context for how the artist’s subject matter has evolved. While persevering in his depiction of transportation, architecture and technology, the newer work offers more challenging perspectives and startling colors. The details are precise throughout, drawn from observation and memory, yet the backgrounds are increasingly reductive, yielding landscapes that are all at once familiar and imagined.

Gallery hours are Tuesday to Saturday from 11am to 5:30pm. For more information please contact the gallery.
