“Twin Visions” Witkin brothers @ Jack Rutberg Fine Arts

Visual arts

An immensely intriguing exhibition pairing the creative output of two brothers, identical twins, both fine artists one expressing himself in oil paint, the other through photography, has just opened at the LaBrea Avenue gallery of arts·meme friend Jack Rutberg. The show examines the mysteries of art from a new perspective, by adding a clever inquiry into an historic art-world phenomenon: the artistic family.

Jerome Witkin, a figurative painter rendering troubling urban scenarios in outsized canvases, and Joel-Peter Witkin, a groundbreaking photographer conjuring the religious, the bizarre, the erotic and surreal, share not only DNA but also a drive to address the psychological in complex and arresting visual tableaux.
