Aaron Peters: Left On For All, Whom I’ve Never Known.May 31st – July 28th, 2023
Opening Reception Wednesday May 31st, 2023 from 6-8 PM.
Left on for all, Whom I’ve Never Known is an installation comprised of neon tubing, soldered glass, mirrors, and cardboard, situated within the distinct architectural elements of Urban Glass’ window gallery. Verging between installation, sculpture, and designed lamps, sight and site are two principal elements of this exhibition. Because of its specific viewpoints from both the interior and exterior, the viewer's experience depends on the time of day, where they are going and where they are coming from.
Aaron Peters received a bachelor’s in visual arts from the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) in 2016 and a Master of Fine Arts at The Ohio State University in 2022. He received the Global Arts + Humanities Society of Fellows Grant from The Ohio State University and will be a Prairie Ronde Residency artist in Vicksburg, Michigan. He currently resides in Columbus, Ohio.
Peters’ work utilizes many processes of art, design, and craft to consider our varying relationships to objects and the built environment. He employs a homemade process of working with materials, objects, and spaces, to allow for meaning to be accessible and provide space for curiosity and discovery. Aaron is maintaining a project for others in his community that values and re-imagines the right to repair and re-use, conservation, and forms of sustainability.
