Statement

Richard Aber lives in Southern California and has been working in the visual arts since the mid-1960's.  He grew up in a creative environment where he was introduced to painting, sculpture, and architecture at an early age.  Upon entering college, he shifted his emphasis to filmmaking, and in graduate school developed an interest in sculpture.  Aber's work is not narrowed to one stylistic approach, and favors a position of "artist as curator" over one singular vision.  What may appear to be a multifarious portfolio could be viewed as cohesive in totality, a result of a natural inquiry that unfolded and allowed for a deeper and more complex conceptual presentation.
