Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery is proud to present Aaron Kasmin: Closely Observed, a solo show featuring small coloured pencil works by Aaron Kasmin. The exhibition will commence with an opening reception, featuring the artist, on Wednesday, April 8 from 6-8pm and will close on May 3, 2015.
Aaron Kasmin creates images of great formal elegance: spare, hard-won, miniature in scale but full of quiet power. He works with coloured pencil on paper. His favored 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 that play with scale, balance, space, color 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. This will be the artist’s second solo show with Rebecca Hossack Art Gallery and the first in the New York location.
