“Art making is intuitive and interactive. Bits and pieces attract each other like magnets and, in the end, the marriage of these elements opens a world that is familiar.”

Enigma Variations – JT Winik

Enigma Variations – JT Winik

Thematically, Winik’s new paintings are composed of two main series; Girl(s) in a Corner and Female Circus Performers. The first series depicts young women in party dresses, sitting alone in corners, confronting the viewer face on. The simplicity of the theme allows the artist’s process to focus solely on interacting with mark-making until a figure forms, each with its own personality and attitude. Sometimes these girls appear a bit broken, other times they challenge the viewer, but mostly there’s a bit of both. It is that merging of conflicting senses that keeps the audience intrigued – with strength and vulnerability co-habiting as they so often do in real life.

Woodrow & Friends: Sharing the Spirit of Generosity

As the story of ‘Woodrow At Sea’ compels the contemplation of the meaning of friendship, generosity
and the importance of supporting those around us enduring hardships, perhaps one of the most special features of the exhibit is the love and compassion the artist exudes for animals, both real and fantastical, and his commitment to animal welfare and advocacy

HAUNTED GRAFFITI – New paintings by Lee Stewart

Rarely do such varied subjects come together in a studied and cohesive body of work, and yet Stewart manages to lend his signature ability to consume and distill disparate cultural forms, from classic films and art history to folklore and pop culture, and to imbue them with something akin to reverence.

Krakow’s work reminds us that our subjective viewpoints necessarily reflect experience filtered through time and that which we most accurately perceive often demands focused attention and thoughtful exploration.
