Patricia Aaron Headshot

Patricia Aaron is an award-winning contemporary abstract painter. Her distinctive work has deep roots: much of her signature style encaustic art was inspired by her childhood home near Ohio’s busy steel mills. Youngstown’s heavily industrialized environment left an indelible impression, one that catalyzed Aaron’s interest in integrating cultural landscape into her artwork. Aaron also draws inspiration from street art and graffiti, evident in her evocative mark making and striking, graphic imagery.

Aaron uses the malleability of pigmented wax to create lustrous, uniquely beautiful surfaces. Each piece is textured and layered upon, building a captivating, tactile surface with expressive depth. Her use of vivid colors, bold lines and daring composition continues to evolve, resulting in ever-more dynamic, distinctive work.

Aaron’s work has been featured in solo museum and airport exhibitions and invitational gallery exhibits throughout the United States, and featured in both regional and national publications. Her work is held in numerous US and UK private and corporate collections.

Artist Statement
Layering is a recurring motif in all aspects of my artwork — subject matter, materials and process. The abstracted cityscapes, landscapes and seascapes I create are expressions of the places I experience translated into paintings. My paintings are created with layers of beeswax, pigment, ink, aerosol, palladium, and other materials applied and fused onto panels.

I use these materials to capture the unique character of each place that has been shaped by time, people, weather, and events. To begin, I work with the larger shapes that define a place such as old, forgotten buildings; trees silhouetted against the sky; island coves teaming with fish; or the abstract patterns of aerial views like the farming circles I saw in South Africa. These basic physical forms of a place create the structure of my paintings; however, it is the character –the essence of a place– that holds its stories and as a storyteller, it is that sense of place that is my inspiration.

As distinct as a location is in its physical characteristics and stories to be revealed, the materials I use in particular combinations and layers are equally as specific as each site. Working with layers of warm pigmented beeswax, painting with encaustics, gives me the opportunity to create a rich, intense surface upon which I can imprint the impressions, colors and forms of a place.

Once that foundation of the painting has been created, it can be enhanced by adding to or subtracting from the surface until I find the depth, context and desired color. The innate nature of encaustics and the process of applying layers of colored wax creates a surface that is visually lavish and can be manipulated in a sculptural manner. I can then add a layer of graffiti-inspired symbols, dripping streams of contrasting colors, and graphite marks to further define the essence of a place. Conversely, I often physically scratch through the layers of melted color which amplifies the depth of the surface as well as exposing glimpses of raw color beneath the surface.

My paintings are the manifestations of what I see and experience during my travels. As a keen observer, I always take in the colors, forms, sounds and textures that surround me but I go deeper still to the history and life of that particular site.  To me, it is most often the intangible spirit of a place that holds the stories I want to tell.

I am a contemporary abstract painter, ardent observer and storyteller transposing my experiences of a place into many layers of encaustic and mixed media resulting in vibrant montages of textures, strokes and colors—visceral abstracted reflections of the scene and its essence.
