With a body of work spanning over 40 years, Albuquerque artist Aaron Karp has exhibited works in galleries and museums throughout the United States, including the prestigious Guggenheim Museum. He is well known for his distinctive style of painting, which utilizes various systems of taping to develop fractured fields of color and space. His works, with their complex layers of intricate geometric forms and vibrant color, invite viewers to lose themselves in the depths of Aaron’s vision.
“Layering itself, I believe, makes up the central metaphor in my work - both literally and figuratively. The process involved in making the paintings is intimately connected to their meaning. The work is about concealing and revealing. It is about the fracturing of color and space, about looking at and into something to extract information and meaning.”
