Collectors' Edition: Aaron Curry: Head Scratch (2018)
Relief print on paper
Edition of 15, with 5 APs
30 x 30 cm
Los Angeles-based artist Aaron Curry’s practice oscillates between the mediums of painting and sculpture. Constantly incorporating qualities of one medium into the other, his works challenge the divisions that isolate one medium from another to reveal a richness in the middle ground.
Unlike the flat, perfectly even appearance of his screen-printed surfaces, Head Scratch (2017) is a relief print that transmits carved strokes onto paper, revealing the artist’s hand. In line with his practice of challenging two and three-dimensional notions, Head Scratch resembles Aaron Curry’s sculptural collages of flat, organically cut shapes that possess a distinctive two-dimensional quality traversing both grounds. Curry draws reference from the distorted planes of Cubism and the biomorphism of Surrealism in building a visual language that is thoroughly his.
The Collector's Edition marks fifteen years of celebrated collaborations between STPI and its artists.
