My name is Aaron Swindell. I'm a self taught abstract artist living in Southern California.
In most areas of my life, I thrive on rules and guidelines. My art gives me the opportunity to move beyond that. I try to explore the relationship between structure and free form expression. I don’t have a clear blueprint when I start a piece, just an idea or emotion. From there I try to operate with very few rules to allow the painting to develop somewhat organically. The works of Mark Rothko, Piet Mondrian and Jackson Pollock continue to inspire me to push myself to explore more ways of creating a transcendent experience for those viewing my work. I believe that art has a profound impact on an individual and my goal is never to try to dictate what that impact is. Each piece has a meaning to me, but I want the viewer to bring their own experiences and emotions to the piece in order to give it a fuller meaning.
