Aaron Kinnane's expressionistic works often channel energy from one subject to create an interconnected series of pieces that are mysterious and intriguing. His recent work ‘Gold Coast’ is infused with energy; through the vibrant colors and masterful detail, each piece reflects the spirit of childhood eccentricity and imagination.
Kinnane’s effervescent paintings and photographs endear the viewer to the gentle, yet strikingly beautiful beasts, who are depicted splashed in bold colors against an ominous dark background. Appearing like they stole the sunset the horse and rider majestically become one as they are caught in a gallop, never vexed by the darkness that surrounds them. Kinnane describes his visual transformation of the animal’s hide as “skins tattooed with fireworks and dawns, and new life.”
Aaron Kinnane graduated in visual art from Newcastle University and has since been published in Harper's Bazaar and numerous solo exhibitions. Kinnane’s talent for enveloping the viewer in his magical world makes on feel as if they have fallen down the rabbit hole and are welcomed to a lively summer fiesta.
