Flowers are wonderful forms. Their petals of bright color resemble strokes of smeared paint. Their stems, leaves, and overall composition feels organic and abstract like paint. Flowers are reminders of Aaron Maier-Carretero’s connection to nature, to painting’s connection to nature, and to the alchemy of painting—turning raw materials into forms and emotions that take on a life of their own. The thick paint and range of bright- and dark-hued grounds transforms the flowers into flourishing beauties, or withering sorrows.
Presented by Luis de Jesus Los Angeles, the show is running until October 28th.
