Each one of Mark Witzling’s oil and cold wax paintings tells a story. But the story is different for everyone who gazes at it. Where some see nature, others see religion. Or a still life. Or a figure. This is the beauty, and the challenge, of contemporary abstract painting. As Witzling says, “with abstracts, you remove the literal constraints.
