Aron Weisenfeld: Featured in Colossal Magazine

Ahead of the upcoming show at James Freeman Gallery featuring Aron Wiesenfeld’s oil paintings, Grace Ebert discusses his new ‘Post-It’ drawings. A friend requested that he do a small a small drawing on a ‘Post It’ note in ink. Aron enjoyed the scaled-down surface and decided to create a whole series in the medium.

Aron Wiesenfeld’s oil paintings will be exhibited at James Freeman Gallery in October.
