More about Aaron Richardson
I am an artist who is seeking to capture the world around me in a way that resonates with the people who see my work. The challenge of art comes in capturing a story, the feeling of an ineffable moment, in a single frame. Oil paint remains one of my favorite mediums because it is delicately balanced. Painting in oils has a Byzantine quality that lends itself to creating something loose and painterly, while at the same time realistic which allows space for interpretation by both the artist and the viewer, while simultaneously providing some degree of overlap in a shared experience. It is my hope that my work provides people with an encounter where our different perspectives of the real everyday world can meet.
