Tune Yer Head presents new and recent work by Texas born, Los Angeles–based artist Aaron Curry (born 1972). Known primarily for his colossal biomorphic metal sculptures and more recently for his neon cosmic paintings, Aaron Curry's work features a unique synthesis of the modernist canon and contemporary cultural touchstones.
Influenced by artists such as Pablo Picasso, Alexander Calder, Kurt Schwitters, Francis Picabia and Basil Wolverton, Curry creates an explosive mash-up of color, texture and scale. His exhibition at The Bass, Florida, and its accompanying catalog survey the diversity of his practice in terms of materiality and form, highlighting the interplay between painting, sculpture and collage.
