There is a strong idea of homogeneity between the different works of Aaron Daem, this counts not only
for the paintings but also for his drawings he makes. The seemingly childlike images like a boat, a sun
and waves are painted with great accuracy, the under layers that are visible through the image refer to
an intense painterly and substantive search. The sensitivity that those simple images receive creates a
contrasting result. The use of his balanced colorite tells us something about the painting in the past but
undeniably from his contemporary position. You can experience the works with a great amusement but
on the other side there is a critical point of view towards the medium itself. (A jury report)

During the GlogauAIR residency, I want to focus on the limits and values of an image. To discover how
an image can maneuver in a contemporary landscape, especially in the case of the painting. The
painting which has, since the early 80’s, started with the following question: can you still paint?
Therefore I want to develop a research from multiple points of view, to put different components and
contexts together in hopes of creating autonomous images. The result of this will be decided by the
environment and his side effects. With this residency I will have the space to confront myself with the
developments and results who will evolve during the residency.
