Aaron Sandnes’s multimedia practice is deeply influenced by his upbringing in Southern California in the 1990s, and his early experiences working on custom cars and making music. Sandnes, who builds custom motorcycles in addition to making art, identifies among his subjects speed, alienation, criminality, the Punk movement, historic visions of the future, and destruction. In a series of prints, “Destruction My Beatrice” (2009), Sandnes collected illustrations dating from the 1950s and ’60s depicting utopian futures and ideas of leisure. He then distorted, discolored, and eroded these such that only fragments of the originals were recognizable. More recently, he has become interested in grease as a material, both for its properties and its technological implications; it has been the primary medium in a series of portraits depicting members of La Bande à Bonnot, an early-20th-century, French anarchist group.
