Aron Wiesenfeld is quickly emerging as a well-known allegorical figurative painter. His work often comprises of figures seemingly caught or lost in some type of over whelming landscape. He is drawn to empty spaces that may seem lonely, but what they are about is the story that’s going on off the pages in the world outside the canvas. It is that back story he is interested in.
Aron says about his work ‘If something is going on behind the surface, people are drawn to it but don’t know why. They’ve connected to something in it. And that is a constant theme through my work, the ability to paint something to suggest something that isn’t shown.”
"There's something about Aron's work that is profoundly haunting. His images stay with me far after I've turned my gaze from them. I am incredibly drawn to the feelings of isolation present in his work and often find myself making up stories for each piece, like trying to recreate a childhood memory or feeling of nostalgia within myself. That beautiful sadness overtakes me in a wonderful way."
