Aaron Gilbert describes his work as exploring “symbolic and psychological narratives” and there’s definitely a dream-like quality to all of them.
He is a 2015 Louis Comfort Tiffany Award recipient, and has been awarded by the American Academy of Arts and Letters as the 2010 ”Young American Painter of Distinction.” Gilbert has exhibited paintings at Lyles and King, Lulu, Deitch Projects, and galleries internationally. His work is currently in the permanent collection of the Studio Museum in Harlem and the Brooklyn Museum of Art. Residencies include 2013 Fountainhead Residency, 2012 Yaddo, 2008 LMCC Workspace Residency as well as a 2008 Affiliate Fellowship at the American Academy in Rome.
Aaron holds an MFA in painting from Yale, and a BFA in painting from RISD.
