September 14th, 2015 Posted by Art, Featured, Film, Illustration, Los Angeles, Mixed Media, Paintings, San Francisco No Comment yet

Aaron Rivera is an artist in the Los Angeles area who we had the pleasure to meet at Le Luz de Jesus Gallery in LA. Rivera works in a variety of mediums – launching himself in his teens as a muralist, Aaron Rivera has traveled many roads in the expansive world of art, from small scale painting to puppet design for the eccentric Spike Jonze. His work possesses a certain bright sentimentality and elicits fond memories and feelings of days passed and those still to come. Rivera takes you on a mental and emotional vacation through his most recent expressions in the celebration of leisure.

More important is the mysticism at the heart of the film. For Godard, art allows us to access a more fundamental reality – one deeper than language can communicate. All of the film’s dialogue is just a way of circling around that inexpressible point, a point well made with a line of Claude Monet’s: “Paint not what we see, for we see nothing…but paint that we don’t see.”
