Art in Process: Patricia Aaron and Chandler Romeo

December 12 2013, 9:37 AM

With square panels, Aaron often uses a convertible easel, which allows her to work in any direction. "I confuse it," she says. Look at the work when it's right side up, and you can tell how Aaron worked on it. A smooth consistency means she painted while it was horizontal; texture (bumps, roughness) is created when the work is straight up-and-down. It took about seven months to finish all of the square pieces, while the discs required about two-and-a-half weeks each.
