I am personal enthralled with this new group show curated by one of my favorite artists, Martin Wittfooth. He brought together 29 internationally renowned painters, and asked them to explore a theme that yielded a wide range of personal perspectives, as well as widely understood, universal stories.
The complexity of this show’s curation, both in the high-level of artistry and thought provoking range of interpretations is not surprise. Wittfooth’s own work is a blend of lush, post-apocolyptic scenery deftly woven with a blend of bleak yet hopeful symbolism. To read more about this staggeringly talented artist & curator, please visit my previous feature of his work.
Copro Gallery Notes:
Historically in art and literature, the imagery of dark water has made a symbolic allusion to… the murky depths of the subconscious or the raging seas of our more turbulent moods. Alternatively, in our modern age the imagery of dark water can also provoke a reflection on such topics as environmental imbalance and a global dependency on – the dark waters of industry.
