Pairing wheel thrown pots with daydreamed sculptural objects about idealized interiors, Aaron is interested in how we select objects to fill our spaces. By distorting scale and presenting functional objects paired with invented shapes holding a physical form, Aaron seeks to pull the viewer into an imagined space. He asks the viewer to think about abstract objects occupying their own mental space. And to consider how these objects might look different or the same to others depending on our relationships to people, our own reality and other objects that surround us.
Mental Spaces coincides with Claytopia, the 53rd Annual NCECA Conference, which will take place March 27 – 30, 2019 in Minneapolis.
