AARON BRAND, ARTIST

FINE ART FROM

FEATURED AT HAUS SALON IN MINNEAPOLIS

This series is a collection of found materials, structureless shapes, and soap box color. I entered 2018 with no objectives and no problems to solve. All I envisioned was creating a cohesive looking body of work that I could plug my opinions and my stories into. What I received was a dense foundation of discovery - all through failure. Almost all of the material I used in 2018 was foraged from different corners of the US. NYC,LA,TX,MN etc. These elements, out of context, may seem dull but, in them I see stories. The paintings were nurtured by me and mean something totally different for myself than how they’re perceived publicly, and that’s okay. I want my work to grab ahold of you in your own way. That’s your experience to endure. Objective number one was to take my singularly dull collection of elements and layer them in physically appealing ways where together they shine and together they engage you as the viewer. It’s what I call a true rags to riches creative process. My paintings are a therapeutic release of creative energy, without them I’m not sure who or where I would be. Thank you for your time, I hope these works bring you feeling and spark conversation. That’s all I could hope for.
