Connected by Color Dazzling Palettes Link Four Colorado Artists at the Arvada Center Michael Paglia Westword October 18, 2018
Arvada Center for the Arts and Humanities Arvada, CO 2018
In the most formal rooms on the upper floor are the encaustic paintings by Aaron, who lives in Denver. These pieces have a magisterial character, owing both to the iconic quality of the limited palettes she often uses (though there are exceptions) and their quiet shimmer under the spotlights. This subtle luminance is a defining characteristic of Aaron’s oeuvre, since she builds up her paintings by applying layer upon layer of translucent coats of wax infused with pigment. Even in a show organized around the use of color, her skills as an accomplished colorist stand out.
“When I look at your work year-over-year, you continue to create increasingly more interesting work. That’s hard to do in any field. Pieces like Midnight River Roll and others in that same time period are extraordinary.”
–Herb and Anna Marie M. -private collectors, Denver, CO
