Exhibition: August 16 – November 15, 2014
Aaron Snethen grew up in Norwalk, Iowa and attended Grand View University. He graduated in 2013 with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Visual Arts and Graphic Design.
Aaron's interest in the arts began with an Etch-A-Sketch at age 3 and 20 years later transformed into large scale paintings on self-stretched canvases.
Relationships fuel Aaron's inspiration in his art. As evident in his paintings, Aaron provokes associations with unique personal characteristics. His work has been motivated by those in his life that he is closest to, and brings them to light in his paintings. He conveys these traits through his use of high contrast and unique color palette, stylistic brush patterns, and large scale compositions. The larger the panting is, the larger of an impact it has in its environment.
Aaron encourages his audience to reflect on their own relationships while viewing his work to create their own personal associations.
