Just when you think Patricia Aaron’s work strikes a familiar chord, when the underlying intent seems to be something simple, she flips things on their heads and expands the conversation. 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
Aaron has begun working in encaustics, that lush material that stands on its own while serving as a vehicle for color and form. And it is those two components of abstraction that now engage her, as this intellectual traveler has marked a path that streamlines her search
for the confluence of two- and three-dimensional work.
