Dennis Wojtkiewicz : Fruit Oil Paintings
Dennis Wojtkiewicz is an Ohio-based artist who has created some incredible oil paintings of fruit. The paintings look like a standing slice, with light passing through the core. Seeds and pulp both showing, Wojtkiewicz creates these paintings to look like photographs. Beyond impressive.
There are a number of elements in the visual undertow which function as metaphor or representation of themes such as spirituality, relationships (or lack thereof), reproduction and, generally speaking, the transitory nature of most stuff. When I go into the studio it is with the intent of imbuing the paintings with a living spirit and to realize something that will connect with the viewer on a sensual if not metaphysical plane.
