About

Aimee Rytenskild is an emerging visual artist from Melbourne, Australia. Aimee's practice spans across a range of disciplines, including painting, sculpture, installation, video and sound. Her work seeks to explore the physical action of mark-making, and the role of the unconscious mind that drives it. Inspired by the lush and emotive imagery that emerged from the Abstract Expressionist movement, Aimee creates large scale work that aims to immerse the viewer in a vivid and energetic atmosphere of colours and textures. The use of multiple mediums such as acrylic, pastel and charcoal, using a palette knife to both liberally apply paint and scratch it off again, creates layers of intense colour and texture. A vibrant pallet often thrown and splashed over surfaces and refined by considered mark making results in imagery that pulsates with energy, triggering a contemplation of the subconscious mind driving these impulses and actions. Aimee completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at RMIT in 2015, majoring in sculpture. More recently in May 2017 Aimee held her first solo exhibition ‘Surfaces’ at prominent Melbourne gallery 45 Downstairs, showcasing large scale mixed media paintings.
