Art by Aaron Wuerker

 

Biography:

       My work has continually returned to a realist vision of the landscape. I'm usually drawn to compositions where mechanized forms either mimic or contrast with the natural forms in the landscape. Painting these scenes gives me the time to meditate on color saturation, and generally obsess over light and the texture of the things I see. I became interested in Still Life painting after a few years of teaching art history. This controlled study of objects lets me play with historical content while exploring painterly mood.
