Artist Aron Wiesenfeld

An artist’s only responsibility is to be interesting. The underlying theme of all my work is the relationship between Nature and culture, the push and pull they have on the individual, and how we try to reconcile them. I feel there is beauty to be found in just about every environment, what I might use for a particular painting is one which I feel serves the story I am trying to tell.

 

Aron Wiesenfeld‘s vast landscapes with a solitary figure evoke empathy from the viewer, the figures often appear lonely, melancholy, somber. There is a quality of suspense as well, as if they tug on a part of our past, something not quite remembered. They evoke the sort of memory’s we have when waking from a dream which you can’t quite recall, you still have the feeling of it, but not the whole meaning, you’re left with the impression of it, the longing, the vulnerable epiphany that the dream was trying to evoke. Aron is a master of the understated, he leaves us hints, makes us wonder about the story. His exquisite detail work draws us close until we feel as if we could walk into his worlds.

Interview with the Artist Olya Volgina

Q: Do you believe as artists that we have a responsibility to address environmental issues?

A: Yes, I think that each person is responsible for what is happening around him, both locally and globally. There is a lot of injustice in the world, perhaps these are the rules of this life, but this does not mean that we should not make efforts and try.

Q: How does nature, the elements, and the environment inspire your work?

A: Nature has always inspired me. I do not separate a person and I think that we are also a part of this whole universe. Since childhood, I was fascinated by nature, I felt my merger with the outside world and talked with trees, insects, and birds. Especially in the summer when I was leaving the city. Now I am less and less often away from the bustle of the city, but mentally I am still there, breathing in the fresh morning humid air. more » “Interview with the Artist Olya Volgina”

Artist Nom Kinnear King

I think it’s important in your work to reflect what’s important to you, my paintings are rooted in escapism and a big part of that is the beauty of nature and wanting to hold on to that and cherish it.

Interview with the Artist Jana Brike

Q: Do you believe as artists that we have a responsibility to address environmental issues?

A: You’re a human being first, and if you as an artist try to address through your work something that is not close to your heart or something that you don’t have any faith in on a human level, nothing good will come of such art.
