(September 22, 2020) Acclaimed artist Aron Wiesenfeld is renowned for his enigmatic paintings, featuring figures in solitary landscapes that capture a sense of melancholy, isolation, and of leaving innocence behind. Now Clover Press is celebrating the artist’s most recent works in Travelers, a new book featuring over 100 pages of the artist’s paintings completed since 2014, curated and designed by the artist himself. Travelers is funding now on .
Travelers is a 10″ x 10″ full color art book featuring the Southern California artist’s latest artwork, in which he uses various tools, including oils, charcoal, watercolor, and pencil. Wiesenfeld transforms a blank canvas into beautiful images portraying eerie and soul touching figures of despair and hope. His subjects appear to be outsiders in their world, more comfortable being part of the scenery surrounding them.
Travelers features an introduction by the New York-based art critic Kimberly Powers. In the introduction she writes, “Wiesenfeld’s paintings are rife with deeply hidden allegory and art historical references, spanning from Byzantine tapestries to the 19th century movements of Tonalism (with a wink and nod to Whistler’s nocturnes) and landscapes influenced by the German Romantic painter Caspar David Friedrich. He traverses the realms of narrative painting like a 21st century time traveler, taking us along on his journey, so that we all become companions on his voyage of artistic discovery.”
The Travelers campaign has multiple tiers, including a softcover; a hardcover; a hardcover slipcase; and hardcovers with limited edition archival prints. For updates, follow Wiesenfeld on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook and follow Clover Press on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.
