Through February 17:
Aaron Delehanty’s work ranges from paintings to drawings to sculpture but whatever form the work takes it all looks towards nature- specifically the border between Nature and Mankind.
Nature is everywhere and everything about my work. I use my art practice as a deep dive into investigating and interrogating the concept of nature. I explore ideas about how we humans answer the question “What is Nature?” and the forces that drive human imagination towards a concept of what Nature is. The work presented here at the University of Rochester considers such things as animal statuary, origami animals, dioramas, idols, artifacts and zoos.
Aaron Delehanty is an artist, maker, teacher, painter and all around active citizen of the Art World. He grew up in Rochester but spent half of his life exploring. One can currently find him in Spencerport NY working out of a 2 story barn. His love of art and environmentalism led to a decade-long career as a studio artist in natural history museums working closely with zoologists, botanists, ecologists, and others to make art pieces that communicate science. Today he works independently in his studio, dubbed Loud Cow Studio, working on natural history diorama commissions.
