April 19, 6 – 8 PM | Aaron Morvan’s Solo Exhibition – Honest Ambiguity
Join us Thursday, April 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. as we celebrate Aaron Morvan and his solo exhibition entitled, “Honest Ambiguity”. The opening reception is come and go. There will be light refreshments and everyone is invited to join us for this event.
For this exhibition, Aaron’s work consists of acrylics on canvas. Through bold yet subtle abstract shapes and muted, but ever deepening palettes, Aaron finds comfort in creating a space “in between”. His abstract shapes are distantly familiar, hinting at conclusions that only you can make for yourself. The exhibition is aptly titled, “Honest Ambiguity”, explores the greyness of the human condition and embracing what is possible. Of this work, Aaron says, “I understand that not everyone may share my affinity for the grey area. Frustration can often accompany vagueness, creating doubt. However, doubt can be used as a tool to inform self-reflection.”
Aaron Morvan is a designer, artist, and curator based in Oklahoma City. He earned his Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Art from Oklahoma Baptist University. In addition to creating his own work, Morvan produces exhibitions for non-gallery venues in Oklahoma City. He makes pizza most every Monday evening and is willing to share—just ask for an invite.
Artist Statement for “Honest Ambiguity”
Ambiguity is a strange and fascinating concept. I’ve come to embrace the ambiguous in my life and in my art—it allows possibility. These shapes can be anything going anywhere. These faces could be anyone from any place. The colors used are inexact and subtle, which I find more interesting than the bold and noisy.
I understand that not everyone may share my affinity for the grey area. Frustration can often accompany vagueness, creating doubt. However, doubt can be used as a tool to inform self-reflection.
This collection as a whole serves as a reminder to embrace the ambiguous parts of life, quieting anxiety and worry. The shapes are a reminder to let unchangeable forces in life be what they are. The faces are a reminder to live and work hard, without getting bogged down. I have no expectations of what your experience with this collection may be, but I hope it may be informative.
