Aaron Morse

Combining the language of advertising and comics with the mythology of the Southwest, Aaron Morse’s work depicts alternate worlds where space is ambiguous and tumultuous. The artist’s large paintings and watercolors draw from a range of influences, including 19th-century Romantic literature, Chinese landscape painting, Japanese woodblock prints, the drawings of outsider artist Henry Darger and the collages of Beat-era artist Jess. Morse’s colorful and layered compositions explore both fantasy and reality, while simultaneously touching on ecological issues.
