The Fertile Ground of New York City Oil Painter Martin Wittfooth

"I'm exploring allegories of rebirth: the notion that we often have to let something die (metaphorically speaking) for something else to be allowed to be realized and flourish."

What’s on Dino Valls’ Mind?

Making a quick dismissal of Valls’ work because it seems a bit kinky and a little disturbing would be to wildly underestimate these paintings, which are much, much, deeper than superficial erotica.

Rose Freymuth-Frazier, neo-realism painter, New York City

"My paintings are allegorical, but I expect each viewer will bring their own interpretation to a piece. The question one asks depends on the individual interpretation. If it’s a superficial read of literal abuse or abasement, then that is the subject being addressed within the viewer. If there is a more complex interpretation stemming from one’s life experiences, then the piece becomes personal, and asks questions the viewer is interested in answering."
