T

he Irish poet William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) once wrote, “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” The word “education” derives from the Latin word meaning “to draw out” or “to lead out,” implying that knowledge exists and, in the case of Yeats, is the fuel for fire. Yeats was drawn to the mystical and that interest occurs throughout his work. An exhibition of Aron Wiesenfeld’s latest drawings and paintings at Jonathan LeVine Gallery in New York draws upon a Yeats poem for its title. Unwind the Winding Path opens November 19 and continues through December 17. “In his poem Byzantium,” Wiesenfeld explains, “Yeats goes on a journey, starting in a physical, material place, and ending in a spiritual place. That’s the greatest thing any artwork can do. I take the quote ‘Unwind the Winding Path’ to refer to finding personal meaning in the progression from the physical to the spiritual, unwinding the chaos of a meaningless environment.” Wiesenfeld’s work is personal in its conception and resolution. He encourages the viewer to go beyond 2
