Aaron Santos Boyd-Rochman

Embrace (2023)

Queer Jew-lipino (Jewish Filipino), American artist, Aaron Santos Boyd-Rochman, uses overlooked objects as the base material for his work. His sculptural process incorporates mundane items to create complex structures suffused with natural rhythm and movement. These extravagant, organic, labyrinthine sculptures evoke multiple dualities, such as stillness and movement; structure and entropy; order and chaos; and solace and uncertainty. His work is imbued with the energy of matter, life and decay.
