Morgan Lehman Gallery openss exhibition of works by Aaron Wexler
Aaron Wexler, Mutually Unshared Spaces, 2014. Acrylic Painted Paper And Print Material Collaged On Panel, 22 x 31 in.

NEW YORK, NY.- Morgan Lehman Gallery presents Aaron Wexler's second solo exhibition with the gallery titled The Basket Looked Like An Ocean, And I Was Just Throwing Rocks In It. Works in the exhibition continue Wexler's unique approach to combining painting, collage, and printmaking media.

Utilizing source materials ranging from found photographs of jungle gyms to Audubon illustrations, Wexler creates an intricate visual architecture that entangles layers of collaged hand painted paper, digital prints, and pages taken from industrial design books. Reciprocally concealing and revealing, the intersection of rigid lines provide a latticework for the organic forms to flow in and out of view. Shape, line, color, and pattern play within this structure, manipulating and shifting in the positive and negative spaces. With a color palette that ranges from neutral to vivid, Wexler weaves together botanical and geometric shapes as a poetic response to the visual potential found in nature.

Aaron Wexler received his B.F.A. from Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia and his M.F.A. from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. His work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions nationally and internationally. Selected galleries include Morgan Lehman Gallery, Pavel Zoubok Gallery, Josée Bienvenu Gallery, One In The Other Gallery and Lehmann Maupin Gallery. His works are in public and private collections including The West Collection, The Saatchi Collection, and The New Britain Museum of American Art. Wexler has been a guest artist and lecturer at institutions such as The Drawing Center, NY, Parsons/New School University, Penn State University, Christies Education, NY and The National Academy Museum, NY. His work has been reviewed in The New York Times, BOMB, and has been featured in numerous catalogs and books on art and design. Aaron Wexler lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.
