I do love work filled with calming translucency and dreamy washes. But sometimes, I’m in the mood for something a bit more wild. The work of South African born Boston-based artist CK Aderem is filled with controlled explosions of texture and color that is totally getting my juices flowin’.
These small scale paintings are like tiny landscape abstractions, bursting forth with color and teeming with movement. Layers peek from behind each other like a mythical creature shyly glancing from around a corner, enchanting and drawing me in to try to get to another glimpse. I want to slide down those thick lines of paint, to see where falling down those rabbit holes might lead. What an adventure it would be to fall into the candy colored world he is creating!
