Contemporary art and a new decade of 21st century sculpture

Aaron Curry

Aaron Curry, new contemporary sculpture

Young LA-based sculptor Aaron Curry combines references to modern masters such as Picasso, Miró and Dalí with aspects of tribal art and contemporary popular culture.

Curry's larger sculptural works are generally representational at heart, a re-articulation of the figure which draws on modernist attempts to find new ways of expressing human form.

Nevertheless, complementary works including paintings, collages and smaller sculpture are often far less easy to define or categorise, existing almost as iterations of aesthetic concerns addressed by the more monumental works.

Curry's visual vocabulary roams from past to present in a symbiosis that combines of-the-moment materials such as spray paint, aluminium, resins and computer-generated imagery with non-didactic homage to 20th century movements.
