Last year, Indiana University Southeast presented an exhibit of artist Caleb Weintraub’s works, in which he created extraordinary landscapes often populated with figures with heads resembling German bisque dolls.

Now, Weintraub, an associate professor of painting at Indiana University, has works displayed at garner narrative contemporary fine art in the exhibit “I Feel No Paint II.”

Among the work are large format paintings, digital works and hybrids. Much of it integrates digital processes with traditional painting techniques. The results are magnificent dreamscapes – that are alluring yet alarming in how they morph reality.

Weintraub earned a bachelor of fine arts from Boston University and his master of fine arts from The University of Pennsylvania. He has shown his work in New York, Philadelphia and Chicago and at art fairs in Miami, London and Zurich. Weintraub has been an artist-in-residence at Redux Art Center in South Carolina and the Santa Fe Art Institute. Significant group shows include exhibitions at the Chicago Cultural Center, the Hyde Park Art Center, and Scion Art Space in Los Angeles.
