Patricia Aaron is a contemporary encaustic painterNavigation
Exploration and a sense of discovery –– these are the most powerful inspirations behind my work. Through impactful ink work and rich, vibrant wax, I bring to life the experiences that have shaped my artistic vision. The cultures, languages and traditions that I uncover in my journeys are transformed in my work, with every layer revealing another memory or emotion. With every panel I paint, I want to convey the beauty and mystery of my travels, and transport the viewer to new and unexpected places.
There are themes of home and domestic life in her work, of nature and sites that inspire her and of investigations into numerous materials from paint and wood to steel, wax and fiber. Hers is pluralistic work – abstraction prodded by conceptualism. It catches a viewer off guard while turning painting, mark-making and sculpture into objects and installations that continue to surprise. Aaron was born in Youngstown, Ohio, and seemed destined for a career in business with art as a strong interest.
