NEW WORKS BY THE WOODPILE COLLECTIVE , THIS COMING SATURDAY NOV 23 6PM-12AM AT EL KARTEL.
Canadian artist Aaron Moran has a bit of a thing for geometry: his mathematically-infused sculptures fusing the forward-thinking of shapes and space with the earthliness of nature, by way of their materials; namely found wood. Evoking early modern art with the colours and patterns he paints onto his reclaimed wooden sculptures – both 2D and 3D – Moran’s works finely balances heritage and futurism, he himself talking of excavating the “history of location”, whilst exploring the aftermath of urban growth.
