Rousseau on Winslow

Winslow, whose career spans decades in the Washington, D.C., metro area, has been widely recognized as among the best around, and he just keeps getting better. His art continues to show tendencies toward exploring unusual perspectives, themes of memory and references to art history. However, in this recent work, autobiographical themes play a dominant role in ways that result in images that are both dreamlike and intense.
Read the full review here. John Winslow's work is on view in the King Street Gallery of the Morris and Gwendolyn Cafritz Arts Center in downtown Silver Spring.
