Tune Yer Head presents new and recent work by Texas born, LA-based artist, Aaron Curry. Though Curry gained early recognition as a sculptor, making a “return” to painting in 2015, his practice is deeply rooted in the painterly. The exhibition at The Bass surveys the diversity of his practice in terms of materiality and form, highlighting the interplay between painting, sculpture and collage. Curry’s work reads as a dialogue with the artists and creative producers that have influenced him throughout his life. From Modernist artists like Picasso, Picabia and Calder, to cartoonist Basil Wolverton, to BMX and skate culture, Curry draws inspiration from a wide array of sources, which manifest as an explosive mashup of color, texture, and scale on the gallery walls.
