Weintraub says “It may be a spectacle of corruption or it may be a utopian vision… My work is not quite a warning. And not quite a celebration. It is a wondering.”

Weintraub writes “It may be a spectacle of corruption or it may be a utopian vision– the kind of utopia people might think up even now – an amalgam of fantasy lands cobbled together from various histories and inhabited by mysterious creatures, fantastic foliage and permanent youth… Here there are vestiges or echoes of a physical world, a world remembered or misremembered and reincarnated in a fanciful way — incongruous plants and animals exist side by side — climates are theoretical, pretended. Children reign.”
Weintraub earned a BFA from Boston University, an MFA from The University of Pennsylvania, and teaches painting at Indiana University Bloomington. Weintraub has had over a dozen solo shows in the past ten years including shows in New York, Philadelphia and Chicago, and his paintings and sculptures have appeared in art fairs in Miami, London, and Zurich. Weintraub has been an artist-in-residence at Redux Art Center in South Carolina and the Santa Fe Art Institute. Significant group shows include exhibitions at the Chicago Cultural Center, the Hyde Park Art Center, and Scion Art Space in Los Angeles. Two of his paintings were featured in the book, “Signs of the Apocalypse/ Rapture” published by Front Forty press, distributed by University of Chicago Press.
About the gallery: Garner Narrative celebrates art with generative messiness and personal-political content. These are some hallmarks of a committed studio practice, in which fluid personal truth is defined through art making.
