Artist Louis Aiello


I believe a work should have a vitality of its own not derivative or imitative. After art school I continued with realism in my creations which was through sculpture. The big switch from realism to abstraction form came first from painting, self taught. After a period of realism in painting. I gradually shifted into abstract experimentation. I discovered a great exhilaration. The transition was done gradually. Varied situations may occur for inspiration, it’s walking through the woods, and being surrounded with the rhythms of nature, in my studio. I make many sketches which eventually bear little resemblance to the original notation. I like working abstractly. I like the endless possibilities as opposed to the single set of values encountered in realism. I experience more a spirit of adventure.
