About the Artist
Aaron Pierre Pines creates vibrant images with captivating textured surfaces. Pines’ artistic process entails multiple, mixed-media layers while building onto these layers over time; carving texture into gesso, adding crumpled paper, and applying sand or pencil shavings. He also adds color in multiple layers, often allowing paint to drip freely across his canvas. Pines states that he creates elaborate textures in his work with the intention that they be touched and enjoyed both visually and tactilely.
Pines credits ancient civilizations as having had a major influence on him as an artist, specifically cultures that have an holistic approach to art. Pines’ artwork features bright colors and strong shapes that give his pieces a graphic quality. Despite his use of bold colors, however, Pines’ shapes appear organic, resembling natural forms such as land, rivers, and oceans. The intricate layering in Pines’ work encourages the viewer to linger on and explore the surface of his canvases as if each piece was a world
in and of itself.
