About Aaron Kellner

Over a few short years I have had the good fortune to watch my sculptures spread from my home in the U.S. to galleries and private collections abroad in Reykjavik, Copenhagen, Berlin, and the Czech Republic.

Aaron KellnerAs a commercial artist I have worked closely with numerous art departments and project managers from Universal Studios, Discovery Channel, Tower Records, Mtv and Disney.

I find my self drawn to objects which express function, while fulfilling my desire to observe good design. I enjoy creating in an abstract atmosphere.

I work mainly in the modular form because of its flexibility and its potential to create an infinite variety of complex systems. Dynamic tension, balance and composition are some of the main elements I try to address in every piece.

 

 

Aaaron KellnerPHILOSOPHY

The Sciences and its’ many branches (mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, etc.) compose a unique form of language. A rich, detailed web of common knowledge that may be our most refined form of communication used to date.
As we use this language to develop a deeper understanding of ourselves and our environment we reveal complex layers of information, seamlessly interconnected systems and repeating patterns that echo throughout.
In my current body of work I reflect these new discoveries by creating my own forms and unique systems by hand. Through the use of balance, proportion, symmetry and scale I attempt to better express the connections between space and form.

 

INSPIRATION

Aaron’s inspiration of linear sculpture comes from his enthusiasm in geometric puzzle developed in his early age.

“For inspiration, I draw from my interest in cubism, minimalism, modern architecture, systems theory and the emergent properties found in nauture.

I see my work as an expression of the beauty inherent in math and geometry. Each piece is interlocking – no adhesives are used in their assembly. I enjoy integrating the organic textures and colors of wood with the “industrial” look of metals.

I hope that you will find in my art that the whole is more interesting than the sum of its parts.”
