Artist statement:

I locate my paintings, thematically, in the historical moment when the advent of photography began to usurp painting’s primary role in the realistic representation of our collective experience. Working from early photography, which often mimicked the formality and grandeur of Academic Painting, I infuse the images with the formal concerns of Modernism as well as the digital palette of our times. I want to playfully acknowledge the breaking-down of Western Society’s patriarchal and hetero-normative past. Images of stoic Victorian gentlemen are transformed though vivid color and sensual brushwork into exotic, vulnerable creatures of desire.

Aaron Smith. Mucksnipes.
Tosh, 2013. Oil on panel, 36 x 27.5”.

When painting baroque and gothic sculptures as well as decorative objects preserved in museums around the world, I focus on the sensuality and gender ambiguity I find in these images.
