Jerome Witkin holds mirror to society’s horrors: ‘Drawn to Paint’ collection demonstrates artist’s method of dealing with the madness

Jerome Witkin typically paints a bleak and morbid picture. He forces us to peel back our eyelids, exposing us to the horrors and morbidity we are eager to avoid, even though their subjects and themes scream of social consequences and an urgency to act, to have that conversation that we have been neglecting for so long. “Drawn to Paint,” a retrospective of Witkin’s work is on display through May 5 at Palmer Museum of Art.
