Aaron Glasson is a New Zealand born Artist now based in the Mojave Desert. He has been actively exhibiting and creating public art works internationally since 2005. His diverse portfolio consists of participatory installations, murals, paintings, illustration, sculpture and film. After decades of figurative work Glasson recently made the shift to abstraction and investigating more ecologically responsible ways of making art. This has led him to resurface bygone ways of painting and building but also led to experiments in creating his own methods. Following an idea that the material guides the maker, his ongoing series of abstract paintings and sculptures uses materials such as reclaimed/ found matter, plant dyes, and paint he makes from found pigment.
