The Hour between Dog & Wolf
by Martijn Caspar Swart
"As my paintings have developed over the years they have become increasingly both rough and sensitive. These are a recent collection of paintings throughout that development in search of a masterpiece. The greatest portraits capture the essence of character, the eyes like windows to the soul."

Jessie Wilber Gallery
A Sense of Place | by Kathleen Rabel
“For many Springs, I returned to Penedo, an ancient village in Portugal, to work in my studio at Vivenda Santa Iria. There, I found angles of light, shadows and reflections in which I experienced a separate dimension of observation. Calçada-paved lanes, rough shadowed whitewashed walls, quiet people moving through light connect me to the sense of sanctuary that I seek in this work. The place and the spirit of the people who live there have clarified my vision of the human spirit that the modern world can obscure.”
Train My Garden Wild by Kathleen Rabel
Weaver Room Gallery
Mythologies | by Martijn Caspar Swart
“The inspiration for these paintings are Mythologies which show us the most universal and deep-rooted aspects of human experience. It is how we remember who we are and what we are capable of. After all, the full breadth of humanity includes much greatness and much suffering, everything in our nature is sublime."
Poetry and Painting by Martijn Caspar Swart
