Aaron Curry is a Texan artist currently working in Los Angles. In the past, Curry has always focussed on sculpture; these abstract pieces were colourful, bold, and influenced by science fiction, comic books, Street art, and late twentieth century Modernism. If I didn't know better, however, I would swear a little bit of Matisse got in there too.

Although sculpture is three-dimensional, there is something very 2D about his work. His sculptures are like flat jigsaw pieces slotted together, and remind me very much of Henri Matisse's late paper cutouts.

Curry has now taken this two-dimensional aspect one step further. For the first time he has delved into the realm of painting, using luminous colours such as bright neon green, yellow, and purple. On display at the Michael Werner Gallery until the 9th August, it is a chance to see Curry's latest work, which although in a different format, retains a remarkably similar style. Although abstract, you can clearly see his science fiction influence. In SGEARS it appears as though a Borg is emerging from a gaseous alcove. The stark colour contrasts in these works make them jump out and demand your attention.
