Aaron Kasmin creates images of great formal elegance: spare, hard-won, small in scale but full of quiet power. He works with coloured pencil on paper and in watercolour. His favoured motifs are everyday objects. He makes us see them anew. 

 

'What I am trying to convey in my work is the pleasure and beauty of looking. I compose small images which play with scale, balance, space, colour and harmony. I enjoy the idiosyncrasies of the freely drawn line. The mood and character of each work is determined by the imperfections of the human eye recreating and interpreting exactly what is in front of it.'

 

Aaron Kasmin studied at the Chelsea School of Art in London. He has exhibited in New York, Paris and London.
