Focusing on the rural environment of Wisconsin, Craig Blietz paints the iconic farm animal and is best known for his depiction of cows. Capturing far more than just the exterior beauty of his subjects, Blietz finds that these animals offer marvelous anthropomorphic opportunities.
“In this most recent body of work I take a look at one of the most treasured aspects of Midwestern existence – the cycle of the seasons. We revere the contrast of conditions in the four seasons and revel in our ability to withstand and adapt to the extremes of each. These paintings strike at the emotional mood experienced as we navigate our way through the seasonal reckoning of time.” – Craig Blietz January 15, 2016
