Late last month, the Lazarides’ Rathbone Place in London hosted Dan Witz’s solo debut with the gallery with a show entitled Prisoners 2012 – 2013. As the title suggests, the new body of work was mainly focused on a series where the NY-based artist partnered with Amnesty International, the world’s largest human rights organization, to create works featuring individuals who are subjects of their campaign for rights awareness. These combined with the lighting in the space made for a dramatic setting. These paintings were joined by some of Witz’ more familiar set of works like his mosh pit and illuminated faces pieces.
