Walter Kravitz: New Works
Drawing form a broad array of influences spanning from Hieronymus Bosch to Arshile Gorky, Walter Kravitz creates large-scale drawings and paintings based on landscape and figurative images in various states of both abundance and decay.  With a surrealist's openness to spontaneity and intuitive understanding of the subconscious, Kravitz builds these works using exquisitely expressive line work and a restrained and judicious use of color.  The viewer is drawn into a works that is fascinating and compelling yet strange and disorienting as well.
