Always Something

Aaron De La Cruz
2015
Ink on canvas
42.0066.00

Influenced by the burgeoning graffiti and skateboard culture of Fresno, California in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Aaron De La Cruz’s distinct style of unplanned mark making blends the precision and rigidity of pattern-based design with the spontaneity and improvisation of street and contemporary painting. De La Cruz adheres to a strict pattern of practice which holds the sanctity of original mark in the highest regard. Despite the intense order of his murals, canvases, and ink drawings, each composition is the reflection of primary action without any editing or repainting. Instead, what few “mistakes” might creep into the work are celebrated, integrated wholistically, and become poetically loose moments in contrast to the exactness of the patterned field. Aaron De La Cruz has participated in several museum exhibitions, most recently at the Long Beach Museum of Art. Previous exhibitions include Public Functionary Gallery in Minneapolis, Known Gallery in Los Angeles, MACLA in San Jose, Soze Gallery in Los Angeles, and Arkitip Project Space.
