Aiden De Vin // French Braids And Braces



Fri, Jun 12th, 2020 to Fri, Jul 3rd, 2020


6:00 pm to 5:00 pm


As a painter, Aiden de Vin use mark-making to explore memories and emotions associated with place.

The gestural brushstrokes in her paintings aim to represent memories of specific people, conversations and feelings. The architectural spaces in the paintings reference various nooks and corners from her home environment.

de Vin explores how movement is a key feature in these paintings as our emotions and memories can live within domestic spaces. Memories also accumulate within domestic spaces, each building upon another in the same way that brushstrokes and colour build layers and atmosphere in a painting.

For example, Mascara in my eye. Crying cause I’m pretty references mundane moments of getting ready intertwined with heartbreak and loss as each was felt within the same walls.

Colour allows for an entrance into the emotions of these works. Paint provides me with a way to explore how memories both build and break down the spaces in which we exist.
