Get to Know the Austin Artist:
My recent paintings have depicted fantastical flowers in compromising situations. Humans have a lot in common with plant-life, and my goal is to represent plants with the emotional complexity that is usually reserved for human subjects. Flowers are generally depicted as symbols of decorative beauty, but they can have bad days too, right? My process often begins with collaged elements, that are then layered with many coats of paint and ink. Currently, I am interested in exploring themes of desperation and existential dread through a playful, and slightly humorous lens.
Originally from Mansfield, Ohio, Aaron Troyer earned a BFA in painting from The Ohio State University in 2006. He has most recently shown work at Telefonica (Tijuana, Mexico), Teros Gallery (San Diego, CA) and 934 Gallery (Columbus, OH). In addition, he has worked as a special educator and art teacher for the past decade, which have both impacted his creative process. Aaron currently lives in Austin, Texas with his wife, daughter, and pets.
