Aaron Holz’s work explores the materiality of paint and the psychological space in and around the figures and objects he depicts. Often referencing painters as divergent as Goya and Darger, Holz combines this dialogue with past practitioners with found contemporary images of wrestlers, sunbathers, floral arrangements and landscape. The diverse nature and utilization of mediums pushes the paintings into a purposely-conflated world of illusion and abstraction. The result is work brimming with desire and longing for a world rendered illusory through unusual juxtapositions of subject matter, heightened and saturated colors, and vertiginous special arrangements.
