For painter and poet Paul Weingarten, all art is the direct result of sentiment and sensation. The most powerful sensation is that of pain, which forces us to seek solace in whatever way we know how. Whether it is melancholy, anxiety, anger, or emptiness, the emotions derived from pain spur the artist to communicate.
Visions and Voices is a mixture of visual art and words, created by a man whose paintings have been recognized nationally in galleries and private collections. Although pain is most powerful, it is most often tempered by sensuality and humor, as illuminated in Weingarten's work, written in the beautiful, flowing tradition of the Romantic poets.
Paul Weingarten's brilliantly colored Expressionist portraits and landscapes subtly reference Modernist masters; yet the work retains a distinct identity that is strong enough to hold its own in dialogue with tradition.-Joyce B. Korotkin, The New York Art World.
