Studio Visit with Martin Wittfooth

Tucked in a corner of a shared Brooklyn studio, Canadian Artist Martin Wittfooth prepares for his newest solo show, ‘Gardens’ at Roq la Rue on December 10. The animals within ‘Gardens’ are in quiet states of transcendence, whether as homes for new growth or levitating within an abandoned room. Paying homage to old Dutch Master painters and mythology, the work appears accessible and illuminated while at the same time carrying an undertone of apocalyptic dread and warning. Hi- Fructose correspondent JL Schnabel recently had the opportunity to visit Martin in his studio to view the new paintings.
