The drawings and paintings of  US artist Aron Wiesen convey grim determination through alternating cold and wet landscapes. His figures gaze with intensity as they move through scenic spaces.

While the landscapes seem to evoke the classical sea and forest depictions of a past era, the figures are made modern by way of clothing and accessories. The duffle bag, paper carry-bag and unmistakable plastic garbage bag bring these pieces into a time quite close to the present.
