From the Imaginary Landscape Series
These large, organic, free-blown vessels have surfaces fired with silver leaf and complex textures of colour. Their subtle luminosity and swirling, painterly effects are reminiscent of Impressionism.
“I like the ambiguity of colour and contrast, the way in which, for example, a swathe of bright red in a landscape or sunset can be read as fire or flower by different viewers. In fact, even though I give each artwork a title that reflects my own perception and inspiration, observers may find themselves recalling moments in time with their own Imaginary Landscapes.”
Adam Aaronson has been at the heart of British studio glass for more than 25 years, firstly as a gallerist and subsequently as an artist in his own right, learning glass later in his career and developing self-taught methods. Adam's current glass blowing studio is in West Horsley, Surrey. Adam specialises in free blown glass. His vessels and sculptures are at once a celebration of the simplicity of pure form, and also an investigation into layering. His coloured patinas draw on painterly techniques but are predominantly inspired by a love of natural landscapes and waterscapes.
