Aaron Kinnane’s paintings are a meditation on the terrain between planes; the breaking down and rebuilding of a horizon line, and the tension between the heaviness of oil and its ability to hover. The works incite a reverie, conjuring both nihility and a multitude of topographies. A restricted palette of hand-mixed mauve, grey-green, bone, violet and indigo form the language for the works. They are simultaneously surface and object: their sides, their corners, the weight of the paint are as much part of the work as the image itself. Kinnane is giving significance to form through a palette knife, eliminating, synthesizing and ultimately modelling his abstractions.
