Drawing from 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 world that is fascinating and compelling yet strange and disorienting as well.
