Aaron Tucker

Is a southern artist who finds inspiration in marks, scratches, scrapes, and half worn images. His work is aged and weathered, the color is raw. He draws heavily from antique children's books, isolating images, then replacing original content with a new, fractured perspective.

Aaron has always worked in both oil paint and collage, using one to influence the other. "Several years ago, I began collecting colored scraps of paper, which I found useful in developing the structure for paintings. Finding marks left behind by children in books from years past drove me toward scratching marks into wet paint, mimicking the uninhibited hand."

"As a child growing up in North Carolina, I spent much time wandering around in the woods, finding treasures, dragging them home, and then making art out of whatever broken bottle or metal scrap I found. These findings soon developed into the paintings I create today."
