Aet Paaro Artist Bio:
I'm a life long artist having made my first drawing of my mother reading the newspaper when I was two. I never looked back. In Soho, I got to know Janet Fish, Charles Parness, Chuck Close and Martha Diamond in the 80's. There really is no substitute for learning how world-class artists think and work, especially through adversity. These friends inspire me to this day. My subject matter is my own life - my travels, the places I've lived, the people who are important to me and my interior life of dreams & thoughts. I always come back to figurative work as a ballast. There's nothing more challenging to me than creating a beautiful landscape, for instance, because it can so easily become uninteresting. The physical handling of paint is what gives a painting life. I really love a tactile surface even though I've made lots of flat paintings with traditional layering, glazing and detail. There's an added energy to the tactile surface that I love. Gerhard Richter is my role model for giving himself permission to be creatively free.
