Utilizing source materials ranging from found photographs of jungle gyms to Audubon illustrations, Aaron Wexler creates an intricate visual architecture that entangles layers of collaged hand painted paper, digital prints, and pages taken from industrial design books. Reciprocally concealing and revealing, the intersection of rigid lines provide a latticework for the organic forms to flow in and out of view. Shape, line, color, and pattern play within this structure, manipulating and shifting in the positive and negative spaces. With a color palette that ranges from neutral to vivid, Wexler weaves together botanical and geometric shapes as a poetic response to the visual potential found in nature.
Wexler’s work has been shown nationally and internationally. He has had solo exhibitions at at Morgan Lehman Gallery and Josée Bienvenu Gallery, both in New York, and at One In The Other Gallery in London. His work has also been included in exhibitions at the Katonah Museum of Art in New York, Saatchi Gallery in London, and The National Academy Museum in New York.
