Works

Between Two Suns

Aaron Michael Skolnick

October 19 -December 1, 2020

Aaron Michael Skolnick’s (b. 1989) paintings address the most human of moments through both literal and allegorical methods. Building on universal themes of intimacy, desire, and mortality, Skolnick’s work bears the mark of his own history. A means to investigate the most profound and complex of experiences, these paintings range from the most graphic of nudes to the most graceful of still lives. By nature, such visual intimacies serve also as symbols of intangible experience, revealing hidden memories, desires, and thrills.
