EXPLOSIVE: PAINTINGS BY STERLING WITT

FEBRUARY 24 – APRIL 7, 2019

Raw and expressionistic, Sterling Witt’s large paintings capture a viewer’s attention from across the room.  Witt’s natural sense of design and composition are innate, and it is instinct alone that guides his brush.  Although largely self-taught, Witt’s work seems to riff on Surrealism, Abstract-Expressionism, and Process art.  In his latest series, presented here, Witt has added the element of chance as he utilizes firearms to explode cans of paint marking and marring the surface of the canvas. Check out his process here…Gun Art Video Draft on Vimeo
