Wade Aaron’s work contains both a formal clarity and an utterly progressive framework.  He avoids the cognitive static that can accompany form and narrative and instead offers work designed to prompt consideration of the boundaries between nothing and nothingness.  In one piece, the imagery is reminiscent of molecular forms grappling with one another.  In some cases, parts of the canvas are stripped away while tension is preserved with thread.  In others, the canvas has been treated with a gesso medium for dimensional stability and the voids are left free-standing resulting in various manifestations of negative space and quiet, contemplative sculptural forms that exist in two dimensions. 

Wade Aaron was recently juried into exhibitions by Joseph Thompson, Director, Mass MOCA and Claudia Altman-Siegel, Director, Luhring-Augustine Gallery.
