Artist of the moment…….William Conger

 

 

William Conger is an American abstract artist born in Dixon, Illinois in the year 1937. In addition to paintings Conger also creates wonderful collage works.

Conger attended the University of New Mexico. Conger went on to earn a MFA from the University of Chicago.

Conger was largely influenced by painter Raymond Johnson. Johnson has been profiled here already and was a leader of the Transcendentalist painters.

The artist began exhibiting his artwork in 1958.

The artist considers himself to paint in an improvised manner. Nothing is planned or thought too far in advance. Conger also hopes to achieve a flat paint surface void of excessive texture or brushwork.
