Aaron Stein

“Automobilia” may evoke very different reactions in different people, but for sculptor Aaron Stein, it means art. Old license plates, photos of cars used as planters, a shadow box with a police cruiser and a doughnut...whichever of his automobile-themed pieces one looks at, Aaron's nostalgic assemblages will be sure to evoke a response.

Having worked in many mediums, Aaron draws from all of them in creating his sculpture. Drawing, painting, sculpting, photography, wood- and metalworking are all part of his creative process. Collecting found objects, buying toys, wrecking toys -- these, too, form a basis for his art. “Scavenged” materials show up throughout his work, reflecting the importance of reuse.
