Artsy on Escape Into Life: Aaron Reichert

3 Jul

Tracy Geilbert at Gallery Orange in New Orleans has a fantastic eye for art.  It isn’t any wonder that many of my faves have come from her gallery or made their way into it!  Today on Escape Into Life, I’m featuring an incredible young figurative artist, Aaron Reichert, whose work can be seen in person at Gallery Orange.  I think you’ll love his graphic portraits!

Wasted and Wounded, Portrait of Tom Waits, acrylic on canvas, 60×48

    Great painting. There are few songs that do as much for me as Tom Traubert’s Blues.

    I like Tom Waits’ music. This portrait is very accurate and appropriately depicted of the person it represents. It’s beautiful. Moving. Contemplative. Dark.

      Totally! This was the image of Aaron’s that I was really drawn too– hope you checked out his other work over on Escape Into Life!

    These paintings are so fragile and honest. It gives me the impression as if the subject is watching himself in a broke mirror, looking upon it’s fragmented, broken and therefor wounded soul.
