Aidan Myers is a Contemporary painter living and working in Cardiff, Wales UK. He regularly exhibits in London and Wales & currently has paintings on loan and in permanent public & private collections in the UK and in USA. Each of Aidanís paintings are self-informing due to the prominent visual and physical qualities of the paint. The tensions between Figure and ground are a vital focus of Aidanís paintings, including Figural allusions within the compositions. Subject matter has become redundant, as Aidanís paintings do not necessary link to a specific underlying meaning. Instead each painting becomes its own entity through instinctive marks and gestures, which formulate fresh, loose enticing and engaging results The process of creation is far more significant to Aidanís paintings because visual & materialistic qualities express his inner emotions and sensations. The ideas around the Figure derive from Aidanís interest in life drawing and anatomy. This ongoing body of research and physical life-drawings form a significant starting point for the compositions.
