William Steiger at Margaret Thatcher Projects
on view through Saturday in his exhibition, Transport, at Margaret Thatcher Projects, 511 West 25th Street, Suite 404, between 10th and 11th avenues, 212 675 0222
Within an essentially graphic design technique of cheery palette and anal retentive precision William Steiger’s highly streamlined means actually revel in a certain complexity. His is a miniaturist’s delight in capturing the inner space of a distant cable car or the almost baroque rythmic complexity of a ferris wheel viewed at an oblique angle. Modern transport nostalgically rendered, his motif, seems an apt metaphor for an aesthetic as picturesque as it is efficient.
