Although Aiden’s talk was around his paintings I found the conversation interesting connecting to the way I think about form and sculpture.
Highlights of the talk were; Allowing the forms and the media to breath through its direction of movement within weight, mass, space and energy. There is embodiment through making and representation. The combination of colours create tension and physical elements through limitation something emerges, this decisive process you see a harmony of layers, difference between purpose and aesthetic, producing layers and textures that aren’t humanly controlled.
There is a power of risk, bravery and exposure of the maker in these impossible creations. You are submersed through scale, repositioning and precision. You lose yourself within the question of time, at what point does the work create it’s own identity as well as an extension of your own being.
