Art in Process: Patricia Aaron and Chandler Romeo

Regardless of the surface, Aaron employs similar techniques. She paints while the object is flat and then hangs it on the wall to scrape through layers or to cause dripping. A torch helps fuse the layers of wax together. On average, Aaron employs 12 layers of wax and ink to each piece. She'll dig through layers to find—and create—markings. Aaron was particularly fond of the imperfections found in the circular barn wood she got from Idaho (pictured), from nail and bug holes to divots, and she often worked to bring the cracks to the forefront.
