These poetic and carefully composed fragments are windows into an autonomous world that continues off the edges of the canvas. They trigger stories in the imagination that can take the shape of fairy tales, or more complex forms, questioning modern-day alienation. References to art history, mythology, and pop culture converge without hierarchical order amid the cluttered remainders of manufactured landscapes, or baroque scenes of nature in glorious overgrowth.

    This is a large book that accommodates some pretty beautiful pairings and charcoal drawings and sketches and digital art from Aron Wiesenfeld, a guy I learn has a history in comics and his feet firmly grounded in illustration and painting. He's been working for several years, the introduction tells me, to discover the possibilities of digital art. These pairings comprise a kind of story, very spare, about a girl, very ethereal, all of it. I found it in the graphic novel section of my library but it could dust as easily been housed in art.. though he does title the collection The Well and this would presume a kind of narrative…. but it's distant and.. ethereal.. and lovely, sure, though distantly so…. It's feels like a dream or drug state. Wiesenfeld attaches his resume to this so we can see what else he has published, where he went to school, etc, as if this were a scholarly enterprise as much as a work of art, and I think that may be right.
