Three uniquely gifted Combustus artists ~ figurative oil painter, Jennifer Balkan ("To Live Life: Laugh"); New York neo-realism painter, Rose Freymuth-Frazier; as well as photographer/painter, Andres Orlowski ("In the Apex of Love and Suffering") ~ are each donating works to our first-ever Combustus raffle!
"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."
