LOS ANGELES, CA.- The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, presents Hammer Projects: Aaron Morse, on view through June 12, 2008. Aaron Morse is a Los Angeles-based artist whose paintings depict epic collages of imagery pulled from sources as divergent as 20th-century American politics, 19th-century Romantic literature, comics, art historical painting genres, and current events. For the Hammer Museum’s lobby walls, Morse will create Timeline, a monumental wallpaper design that has been printed and reworked by hand-painting. Timeline is a densely composed vertical collage that depicts events from the Big Bang to the imagined future. Disproportionate visual space is given to things here on earth, with groups of figures simultaneously ordered and chaotically jumbled.

Aaron Morse was born in 1974 in Tucson, Arizona. He received his Master of Fine Arts from the University of Cincinnati, Ohio in 1998. Selected solo exhibitions include ACME, Los Angeles (2007, 2005, and 2003) and Guild and Greyshkul, New York (2006). Selected group exhibitions include MATRIX 213: Some Forgotten Place, Berkeley Art Museum (2004) and International Paper, Hammer Museum (2003). He has recently published a lithograph for the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Hammer Projects is a series of exhibitions focusing primarily on the work of emerging artists. Hammer Projects is made possible with support from The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, the Annenberg Foundation, Fox Entertainment Group’s Arts Development Fee, the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, members of the Hammer Circle, and the David Teiger Curatorial Travel Fund.
