Aaron Kinnane's works are a meditation on the terrain between planes; the breaking down and rebuilding of a horizon line and the tension between the heaviness of oil and its ability to hover. The artist gives significance to form through a palette knife, eliminating, synthesizing and ultimately modelling his abstractions. A restricted palette of hand-mixed mauve, grey-green, bone, violet and black form the visual language of the works, becoming both surface and object: their sides, their corners, the weight of the paint are as much a part of the work as the image itself. Through the multitude of topographies tacitly evoked, the works incite an ambiguous mixture of reverie and nihility.
