Watchlist Artist: Aaron Aujla

Steve Turner Contemporary is pleased to present Marriage Material, a solo exhibition by New York-based artist Aaron Aujla in which the artist explores the values that he deems fundamental to effective interior design–the division of space and the amalgamation of utilitarian and sculptural ideals. The exhibition will feature two shelf sculptures that simultaneously preserve and occupy the space; abstract wall works made from cedar shingles and an installation dedicated to interior designer Victoria Hagan. In aiming to combine vanity with pragmatism, Aujla uses materials that are made for utilitarian function but which also have aesthetic value.
