Pa­tri­cia Aaron: Dreams Run Deep

2015, en­caus­tic on panel

Pasatiempo - - PASA WEEK -

The Wil­liam & Joseph Gallery, 727 Canyon Road, 505-982-9404 Pa­tri­cia Aaron’s ab­stract paint­ings are in­spired by the aban­doned mills, train de­pots, farm­steads, and shop­ping cen­ters that now serve as sur­faces for street art and graf­fiti. Aaron sees beauty in ur­ban blight, which she re­con­tex­tu­al­izes in her work. “Each mark is in­ten­tional,” she writes. “Ware­house dis­tricts, skate parks, and boarded up store­fronts in Lon­don, Cape Town, Phoenix, Miami, New York City, and my home­town of Youngstown, Ohio, have found their way into each of th­ese paint­ings.” Her show Me­trop­o­lis opens with a 5 p.m. re­cep­tion on Fri­day, May 1.
