Preview: Aaron Nagel’s “Bastion, New Works” at Shooting Gallery

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Tomorrow, San Francisco’s Shooting Gallery will debut a new body of work by Aaron Nagel titled “Bastion.” In his masterful oil paintings, Nagel captures nude subjects in various states of repose. After a while of looking, one might experience a creeping sense of voyeurism as the realization sets in that these women are so relaxed because they don’t know we’re watching. Subtly ornamented with geometric patterns, Nagel’s new body of work puts a fresh spin on the mysticism and sensuality traditionally associated with the female nude. Take a look at our preview of the show below and check out “Bastion” June 8 through June 29.
