Monkeys Moons & Monoliths
‘I aim to transcend the veneer of commercial imagery, boiling down the vacuous skin and bones of contemporary culture and make relics from this primordial soup, if not for now, for the radiated man living off the ashes of the post-apocalyptic, European landscape.’
Aaron’s work is formed through his experience of the culture and the information that we are exposed to in contemporary society – the Internet, film and books provide us with an endless stream of imagery and information, carefully designed for our consumption and manipulation. In contrast to the screen, we simultaneously experience the material world, as well as our ancestral history, ancient past and future possibilities.
Aaron attempts to create analogue imagery with a hieroglyphic effect: a combination of visual languages, encapsulating a process of absorption, dissection and re-appropriation of contemporary visual culture. Through this process, he aims to present the viewer with a distilled snapshot of his interaction with visual culture and create images that open a dialogue between his paintings, the viewer and the wider context of our society.
