On Thursday, September 18th, 2014, Arcadia Contemporary will host an exhibition of all new paintings by Aron Wiesenfeld.
Wiesenfeld’s paintings and drawings may be described as spooky, surreal, imaginative, and storytelling. Often the subject is portrayed alone, in ambiguous situations that evoke a sense of mystery and sometimes nostalgia. Wiesenfeld uses familiar objects and setting and juxtaposes them with the uncanny, leading us into a dream world. Often the paintings will be of a beautiful subject, but something within the picture is out of whack, making it seem a little bit “off”. This intrigue is what sets his work apart. It puts the viewer in the position of being a detective, leaving it up to them to decide what the story is, and why the image is unsettling to them.
Aron Wiesenfeld’s show “Solstice” is on view at Arcadia Contemporary in New York, NY opening on September 18th, 6-8pm and is up during the month of September. Also at Arcadia Contemporary, on September 20th, from 12-2pm, Aron will be signing copies “The Well”, a 120 page artist monograph featuring artwork from the past 15 years of his career.
