About Art of Aaron Wooten

 
 
  • Biography
    I picked up painting about ten years ago as a hobby. I paint cityscapes, political cartoons, portraits, pretty girls and nudes. I've been featured in The New York Times, Chicago Reader, Art & Beyond and a number of other national and international arts magazines and journals.  I have contributed to the Chicago area art scene for nine years.

    My work focuses on the theme of nostalgia.  I do this in a number of ways.  With my cityscapes and figures and portraits I reflect on photos of the past, bygone styles, dead celebrities and with the use of vintage maude colors. By working with acrylic on canvas I allow the roughness of the paint and the grids of the canvas to show through.  

    The theme is a bit of a post-aesthetic one.  My work deals with memories of temporary constructs rather than grand narratives.  The content is one of "happenings".  That is, my work consists of captured events that are taking place and are simply taken out of time of a Proustian nature.

    My hope is to feel beauty that is removed from intent.  Like a Kantian sublime my work gathers distinction and indeterminacy.
