Aaron J. Gilbert Paints Uncomfortable Elements of Relationships

by Nastia VoynovskayaPosted on

Focusing on familial and romantic relationships in his work, Aaron J. Gilbert takes his viewers into the quiet, domestic worlds of his stylized characters. Often donning placid expressions, these characters illustrate the different phases a relationship can take — from lust to intimacy to co-depedency. Infantile man-child hybrids appear in many of Gilbert’s works, illustrating the ways even the most guarded people can become vulnerable and childlike in emotional situations. Take a look at some of Gilbert’s paintings below.
