William Steinberg writes the following about his art practice:
Architecture inevitably erodes and as it moves towards entropy, it transforms. No longer part of the new and useful, it takes on a new persona and character—the ruin. It now possesses the remnants of its past glory, the physicality of its present existence, and the potential to inspire the future.
William Steinberg began printmaking in architecture school in the early 1970s under the instruction of his professor, Leslie Laskey, who was a student of Lazlo Moholy-Nagy of the Bauhaus. Prior to his joining Open Studio in 2015, he printed at The Saidye Bronfman Aetilier in Montreal from 1980 -1992 and Malaspina Printmaking Society in Vancouver from 1992-2015. Since 1985, his prints have been exhibited nationally and internationally and are included in numerous public and private collections in North America, Europe, and Japan.
