Aaron’s visual art and lighting are currently on display at the Showroom. Join us for an artist reception January 25th from 5-8p.m.
“I’m a local designer of things….lighting mostly, but I tend to create with recycled materials which may redirect the final outcome to furniture, sculpture and framed work. I’ve been told “everything doesn’t need to be a light”…… But if the design warrants, that’s what it’ll be. I take great responsibility into what I create, its not as easy as you think to assemble a number of recycled items for a seamless end result, that is safe, first and foremost, for the consumer and environment. It’s rewarding as a designer to go on the hunt for the piece to make the design work, to find the hole in the wall that harbors all old surplus discarded materials, where they go to die and be forgotten, and make that material the star of a design again, a perfect fit. I’d like to say its easier to create a work from scratch, when all the pieces are fabricated and there is no manipulation of the materials that makes the whole, it’s not. It’s probably more painstaking to have a finished product “perfect” in a minds eye than just moving where the materials take you, working for “perfection” with a already exciting material dictates the end result and has less to do with how ‘the designer’ sees the end result, thus becoming much more organic.”
