Behind the pseudonym of Lor Dethal lies Nemanja Torlak, a writer for Widewalls intrigued and moved by diversity in art and in the lives of those who create it. It is often the unexpected that come forth and surprise us, and art is a world that allows it and makes it possible. David beats the Goliath daily, and writing about it is a pleasure.

The American-born artist June Leaf has made an array of sculptures and paintings in her long career, focused on humanist themes, particularly women. Although she tried a number of different styles, she remains an expert with acrylic and allergic to oil paint.
