„One is inclined to misunderstand Scheer’s work. His compositions tempt one to look for traces of image processing software or AI. Yet almost all of them are based on a white JPG. Like a white canvas: at the beginning a line, a block of color, drawn by hand, a classic image composition. Scheer works without a design. He runs his material through various programs – Photoshop, Mac Preview, Figma, Illustrator. Layer by layer. The status quo is exported as a JPG, no edit file cached. Each command S – a state to which he must respond.“

Scheer’s unboxing pieces play with the neo-capitalist wow-effect of emotionally charged products that go way beyond their functionality. While placing themselves in the tradition of a medium old as art history itself: sculptures. One of the latest adventures Scheer has set out to. 

Without the physical object, viral videos of people unboxing the latest tech, and all sorts of other fetishized products, wouldn’t exist. Without the physical world, the digital can’t exist and vice versa. A duality that is omnipresent in Scheer’s work. With his new series, he ventures out once again to explore a more sculptural approach to his work. Interfaces that we encounter every day from browsing websites and phones build the inside of what Scheer reveals in a micro-performative act. Elements from the UX and UI world form a composition, at times reminding us of Picassoesque humanoid characters. Seemingly wanting to tell us something with their hidden messages: Control, escape, run.

„It’s 2020 and Aaron Scheer wants to know. To know what the Internet thinks about him. So he asks Google. He uploads a work via reverse image search, and the algorithm shows him similar images. Scheer struggles with abstraction. Before anyone interprets a cloud into his work, he lets the machine lay it out: _Color technology art Images – Search. Titel done!“

„The tension between analogue and digital or between materiality and immateriality is one of my major themes. It is a natural transit from classical contemporary painting with analogue materials to a new contemporary painting with digital materials.“ – Aaron Scheer
