Christine Aaron

"My work focuses on themes of loss, the inexorable passage of time, and the fragility of human connection. I aim to evoke shared memories, both real and symbolic, that connect across generations. The intellectual and emotional content of my work directly guides my selection of materials, technique and imagery. The process of creating my work through printmaking and encaustic media allows me to develop my work by layering, much the way that human perception and memory is formed. I use these media in differing combinations to evoke different layers of emotion, and to better convey a visual sense of the archaeological act of recollection. In my works on metal, I allow rust and oxidation to occur in stages, so that time itself becomes an integral part of the composition of the completed work. My imagery tends to be representational but I combine it with abstract textures and patterns, again, in order to convey the imprecise combination of objective and subjective memory that is part of what guides our shared human journey.”
