Tune Yer Head, Aaron Curry’s new art exhibition that presents new and recent work by the LA-based contemporary artist. Initially, the artist gained recognition because of his art sculpture, but nowadays his practice took a different direction, painting.
This art exhibition at The Bass, in Miami, showcases Curry’s duality when it comes to modern art, but also contemplates some of his collages. His contemporary art is like a merge of all the artists that got him inspired throughout his entire life and that concept is very noticeable, you might even recognize some familiar aspects.
From Modernist artists like Picasso, Picabia, and Alexander Calder, to cartoonist Basil Wolverton, to BMX and skate culture, Curry has many sources of inspiration, which manifests as an explosive mash-up of color, texture, and scale on the gallery walls.
“At a certain point, I started adding things to the surface, and before I knew it, I was making objects. It was that organic.”
His sculptures and paintings are vividly colored and expressive, they certainly make a big statement and with this art exhibition there’s no exception, it’s more than just crazy art. The artist blurs the normative line between abstraction and figuration, painting and sculpture, flatness and dimensionality, formalism and conceptualism. It perfectly shows the middle of both sides! I Lobo You is crazy about this type of concept, something that defies all the rules and expectancies from worldwide art lovers.
The idea of wanting to pull something out into the real world led him to sculpture. All his work has influences and references from Cubism, Abstract Expressionism, graffiti and cartoons and this aspect is very noticeable in this art exhibition at The Bass! He even considers his paintings as sculptures for composing them in flat plywood, cardboard, or aluminum. Both Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró feature heavily in his influences, inspiring Curry’s use of biomorphic shapes and fusion of Surrealism with Pop Art.
