“I love the spare, the austere, those places where you have a strong sense of the hugeness of nature and a feeling for what is beyond what is immediately visible.� -Jeff Aeling

JEFF AELING Land and Sky

The paintings of Jeff Aeling tell the experience of being on the land, the power of nature and the beauty of light. They reveal to us a deep connection to the vastness of the landscape of our country. Informed by the history of art and science, Aeling looks at the mutual embrace of land and sky as a twenty-first century observer. He shows us the specific qualities of a particular day and season, the temperature cool and the atmosphere clear, or, warm and humid, winds blustery or still, as he searches for the essence of what is universal. Wide-open spaces have always been an essential part of our national identity and Jeff Aeling’s landscape paintings serve as a contemporary metaphor for the expansiveness and openness of America itself. Aeling’s paintings anticipate memory and capture the transitory and eternal as one. The paintings of Jeff Aeling are held in numerous museum and corporate collections including The Beach Museum, Manhattan, Kansas; The Denver Art Museum, Colorado; The Daum Museum of Contemporary Art, Sedalia, Missouri; The Nerman Museum of Contemporary Art and Sprint World Headquarters, Overland Park, Kansas; The Museum of the West, Tucson, AZ; Tucson Museum of Art, AZ; Exeter Oil Corporation, Denver, Colorado; and DST Systems, Kansas City. Missouri.
