Biography

Combining painting and collage, American artist Aaron Morse strives to make sense of the past and the present, connecting the two so as to examine the future. Morse’s zigzagging timelines explore both historical and mythical themes, from dreamlike mountain treks to space exploration. His scenes are envisioned from above or in cross-sections. The faded colors of the tangled imagery on top of crinkled terrains evoke the remnants of time passed and require the viewer to slow down in order to grasp a bigger picture.
