“He’s a dreamer!” (Definitley, and Dream BIG he does!) …
“His work will never make it past the doorway of his studio!”… WRONG!
Undoubtedly, some gauche, art critic at one time or another thought those same things to him or herself about what they saw when experiencing one of Christopher Aaron’s breathtaking works of Abstract Art. Christopher Aaron, through his passion for abstract art and his remarkable work ethic, has put all doubts to rest.
Southern California’s own Christopher Aaron brings the hues and textures of today’s bold new concrete metropolis’ into the warm, luxurious spaces his collectors inhabit all across the world. Christopher Aaron IS a dreamer, is a visionary, and we’re all a little crazy, it keeps us from becoming boring. See, Christopher Aaron doesn’t stop at a simple color field masterpiece; he doesn’t stop after masterfully blending bold contrasts of grays together; he doesn’t stop after taking his palette knife and creating stark textures within his layers of paint. Christopher Aaron combines a multitude of textures, mediums, and color palettes to create what we here can only describe as “Urbexture”.
How would we describe “Urbexture”?…try to imagine…you’re in any major city in the world, and you happen upon an older section of town. The buildings are a bit weathered, time and mother nature have taken their toll on what appear to have been once lavishly adorned concrete surfaces. Hints of vibrant colors emerge across hard cracks and through the rough granite underbelly that has resurfaced through years of erosion. Now imagine that texture, that vibrant decay, reimagined onto canvas. You may then have perhaps a glimpse of an idea of what Christopher Aaron’s masterpieces really are. But once you see them, once you stand before their size, and distinguished presence, you still cannot fully appreciate their beauty. Here at Articentric, Abstract Art is one of our favorite genres of art, and Christopher Aaron is one of it’s masters.
Articentric caught up with Christopher in his San Diego art studio, to allow our readers to get to know a little more about him, his art, his environment, etc. So…without further Adieu, Ladies and Gentlemen:
