Martin Wittfooth’s oil paintings vividly compare animal nature with modern fears and environment. Humans while absent in Wittfooth's paintings are shown through the dismal earth we create for his animal subjects. Our destruction of landscape and our polluting industries make the backdrop to these visual narratives. Painting on massive wood panels, linen and canvas Wittfooth creates large compelling paintings that directly confront the viewer. Raising the question of who is truly the focus of this shared environment. Martin Wittfooth currently lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
