Michael Werner Gallery is pleased to announce Headspace, an exhibition of new paintings by Aaron Curry. This is the artist’s first exhibition devoted to paintings in New York.

About

Drawing on late-20th century modernism, science fiction, comic book illustration and California street style, Curry’s complex, intensely colored sculptures slyly upended received notions of abstraction, figuration and the role of sculpture as form-in-space. Painting has long been an essential constituent of Curry’s three-dimensional work and has gradually come to the fore of his practice as a discrete artistic expression in its own right. Curry’s paintings posit a thorough conflation of illusionistic depiction and sculptural volume. The insouciant abstraction of the paintings’ shaped supports nods to the sculptural core of Curry’s sensibility, whereas their painted surfaces posit a complexity of depth and mystery encompassing the flatly digital and cosmically multidimensional. Curry’s paintings represent a bold step forward in his ever-evolving conceptions of meaning, form and space.
