Harwood Steiger, a master of the watercolor medium, lived for many years in Fairport, NY. Steiger’s industrial landscape is a ramshackle vision. The title, Fungus, implies Steiger’s impression of industry as a growing blight on the landscape. However, the almost-comical characterizations suggest a more harmless than threatening presence.
