Aaron Fink is a chronicler of materiality, in a sense like his precursors in the Pop Art movement. His complex paintings are more textured and emotionally resonant.
Fink loosely and sensuously captures mundane fruit and other objects in oil paint on board, often layering into and over the top with painterly, combed scrims that set up a cinematic blur. He says, After I've worked with an object for a while, it becomes more of a vehicle for exploring the painting medium itself.
Aaron Fink received his BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and his MFA from the prestigious Yale University School of Art. His work has been exhibited widely throughout the United States, Europe, Japan and Australia. His work is represented in the collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, Chicago, IL, the Hara Museum, Tokyo, Japan, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, NY, the Museum of Modern Art, New York, NY, and the National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC, among many others.
