Here’s what Aron Wiesenfeld 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. That is a constant theme through my work, the ability to paint something to suggest something that isn’t shown.”

The painting below is entitled Low Tide.
