Large Format Color Field Paintings by Issac Aden Reference Moody Atmospheric Landscapes

Part of a stun­ning new series of reductive, ethereal and introspective paintings by New York artist Isaac Aden that formally explore tonal ranges of color in a variety of palettes. They are moody as they trigger thoughts of those rare moments as the sun ignites a new day or gently fades into the evening. These paintings capture singular and atmospheric moments within a day or in the aggregate with many such moments over a much longer period of time. Inherently, these moments and views reference the landscape, which adds to the complexity of this series as they also read as pure color abstractions in both vertical and horizontal formats.

Please let me know if you would like prices, additional images or information. Happy to assist.

Look forward to your reply.

Kind regards,

About Isaac Aden: Isaac Aden is an artist and curator. His work engages the arc of history through the lenses of the human condition.  Aden’s Post-Medium practice has centered its primary research in the area of New Institutionalism.  Aden makes bodies of work often tangentially related and even visually disparate with no desire to ascribe an aesthetic conclusion.  In this way the practice becomes absorbent and generative. Aden has exhibited internationally, including: dOCUMENTA 13, MassMOCA, The Fedricianum, White Box, Kassel Werkstadt, David Richard Gallery, Gallerie Rasch, Ulrike Petschel Gallerie, Ethan Cohen Fine Art, SPRING/BREAK, Art Miami, Contemporary Istanbul, VOLTA Basel, Sotheby’s, The Jerome A. Cohen And Joan Lebold Cohen Center for Art. The Bertha and Karl Luebsdorf Gallery, The International Gallery of Contemporary Art, The Parthenon Museum, The New York Public Library, and The World Trade Center. Aden is on the board of White Box and formerly the Senior Curator at the Jerome A Cohen and Joan Lebold Cohen Center for Visual Arts.  He was named the Chief Curator of four art fairs including the AD ART Show at Sotheby’s and the World Trade Center, New York and the Accessible Art Fair. As part of this he developed and executed the first city wide digital art fair, partnering with corporate sponsors including Systech Systems and NBC Universal. Over 13 million people viewed the fair.  He has curated over twenty exhibitions, including Jeffrey Hargrave, Escape Route, at the Bronx Museum. He has been awarded Fellowships from the Kossak Foundation, Creative Capital, The New York Foundation for the Arts and the United States State Department. He is currently represented by: Gallerie Rasch in Germany, Marat Guelman in Russia and the Balkans, and David Richard Gallery the Americas.
